I'm trying to compile the source with mingw on Windows. My problem is that I cannot get cmake to find any libraries. I don't want to compile them now (I tried that for one and it did not work either). Instead want to use the files I already have. First of all I should make sure I understand what is meant by a library. It refers to the .dll files, right? Or is it something else that it is looking for? I tried pasting the DLLs all over the place but to no avail.
The error stems from the following line in cmakelist.txt:
with a message 'could NOT find SDL (missing: SDL_LIBRARY)'
The error also occurs for dozens of similar lines for finding GLEW, zlib, etc.
Where and for what does this command search?
