Just downloaded and tried to build under cygwin, get the following error:
gcc: /usr/X11R6/lib/.libs/libfreetype.a: No such file or directory
make: *** [kernel/openbox.exe] Error 1
make: Leaving directory `/usr/src/openbox-3.0-alpha5'

libfreetype.a exists in /usr/X11R6/lib, but there is no .libs directory

> Greetings all,
> I've just made an Alpha5 release of Openbox 3.0. Here's the
> release notes
> from the website:
> To celebrate my 22nd birthday, I am releasing Alpha5!
> Alpha5 has some bugfixes, as well as some new stuff. Notable
> changes since
> Alpha4 are as follows:
> * Split the menu into its own file. See the
> default/installed rc3 and menu
> for examples. The menu is searched for as $HOME/.openbox/menu and
> $PREFIX/openbox/menu if you do not specify a location in
> the rc3 (or it
> can't be loaded).
> * Titles are no longer shown on submenus.
> * Added the client_list_menu plugin (Default binding is
> Middle button on
> the root window).
> * Added a new "activate" action which brings a window right to the
> forefront (raises, focuses, unshades, uniconifies).
> * Keyboard/Mouse input and Resistance are no longer done
> through plugins.
> If you have these in a pluginrc, you should remove them!
> * New dialog shown while cycling/switching desktops. Added
> a cyclingDialog
> option in the desktops section of the rc3. If using the
> dialog, and
> using the mouse wheel to change desktops, it is
> recommended that you use
> the Alt+Wheel bindings (by default these are bound to
> work anywhere on
> the screen). If you use the simple "Wheel on root"
> bindings, you'll end
> up having to hit enter to pick the desktop.
> * Fixes for directional focus actions, new GrowToEdge actions.
> * Added the chainQuitKey option in the keybaord section of the rc3.
> * Bullets for submenus. (A nicer default bullet will be
> * New and improved window maximizing! The decorations
> adjust themselves
> intelligently around the window based on how it is
> maximized, and the
> handle at the bottom is removed when the window is maximized fully
> (horizontally and vertically).
> * Show a position based on the struts in the coords popup
> when moving a
> * Getting rid of non-opaque window move/resize. Instead,
> add an option -
> drawContents - for if the window's contents are to be
> updated during a
> The tarball awaits you here:
