Of all the stupid ways to break a build…

A few weeks ago, my Linux operating system stopped talking to the Internet. So I made sure I could download the code via Windows (CygWin is so nice), and then copy it over. Right?
Well, not exactly. When I started building, the build would die hours later with a message, “No rule to make target ‘README’. Stop.” (This was under /xpfe/bootstrap/init.d .)
Someone told me to comment that out, and when I did that, I got the same error message for ‘LICENSE’.
This morning I ran the ‘gmake -d -f Makefile’ command from the init.d directory

. It listed a bunch of things it looked for: ‘README’, ‘README.h’, ‘README.cpp’, etc. It didn’t find the README file… because somehow it got copied over as ‘readme’. (Lowercase letters.)
Fixed that for ‘README’ and ‘LICENSE’, and now I can successfully complete a build. I can’t access the Internet from home now (remember, I’m looking for a job), but I can develop and am developing several little tools and the Abacus MathML editor. If I keep up the current pace, I should have the editor, version 0.1, within about a week.
On another note, remember the Mozilla Runtime Engine idea? (I know, they’ve sometimes called it Gecko Runtime Engine, but…) Here’s what it really is.
