[sword-devel] Still trying to get a build

On the contrary I had almost no problems with getting the stuff compiled out 
of the box.
I'm using BCB6. I've followed the procedure in 
http://www.crosswire.org/ucgi-bin/twiki/view/Swordwin/GettingStarted, and 
for SVN sources (today and yesterday version) it compiles smoothly.Three 
days ago there was a problem with one file, but Troy did updated the project 
file and now its OK.
My environment: XPSP2, BCB6, clean SVN version and ICU28dll.

*however* i do have a problem with sword tools as there is no bcb6 project 
file for it. I'm asking kindly for it to be created by developers. Why? 
Reasoning is simple: there are no 'nightly builds'. The only way to check 
the newest version is to DIY. As Chris wrote, bcb5 is hard to get. bcb6 is 
available in various newspaper cd/dvds (at least in Poland), and anyone can 
get free personal license (and work on it with sword not violating the 
license). The ultimate solution would be to be able to use freely available 
compiler (as free command line compilers from borland 5.5). Currently, the 
sufficient thing would be to get bcb6 project files for sword tools and take 
care to sync project files.
