Build script cannot find DEPENDENCIES after Kenneth Lavrsen (that is me) moved it from tools to lib.

The move from tools to lib was needed to avoid demanding that the admin installs the tools directory in the same parent as the lib directory. Such a requirement is silly to have just to find one file used by configure.

And adding a configure setting to be used by configure is even more silly.

It is best to keep DEPENDENCIES in lib and fix the build script.

It is not urgent because there is a work around.

The build script looks for DEPENDENCIES in the current working directory. Ie. tools when you build TWiki.

The trick is to build a TWiki release like this

cd lib
perl ../tools/build.pl release

and that will do fine for now. But we should fix build at some point so it picks up DEPENDENCIES from the lib dir when you build TWiki but not when you build extensions.

Hmmm, this doesn't look relevant any more?

No Sven fixed this
