This is the contrib build system for VLC Media Player. It has been
2
primarily developed for Mac, it has been adapted for Win32.
3
It would be not too difficult to extend it to other sytem.

5
To use it, first in the contrib directory, type :
6 7
	./bootstrap

8
You can specify an argument to cross compile, for example:
9 10
    ./bootstrap i586-mingw32msvc
This will look for a i586-mingw32msvc-gcc cross compiler. Default is to
11 12
build natively.

13 14 15 16
Bootstrap generates your default contrib configuration and puts it in a file
named 'distro.mak'. Edit this file to fine-tune your preferences for 3rd-party
libraries that will be build in the contrib system.

17
Customize config.mak if you need to, then you need to choose between
18 19
building from source (can take a long time but is easily customizable)
and fetching a pre-compiled binary package. Either type 'make src'
20
or 'make bin' (also from the contrib directory).
21

22 23
Once the contribs are built, you can start building VLC.
See: http://developers.videolan.org/vlc/osx-compile.html 
24
or INSTALL.win32 for more details on that.

Happy hacking.
