Newbie trying to build statically linkable lib.

Varun Jobanputra
Hi,
 
I am a total newbie !! so please excuse my stupid
question...
 
I was able to use Win32 pthreads as a DLL. Everything
was perfect.
 
But for easier distribution of my program I want to
link it statically.
 
So I downloaded pthreads-w32-2-8-0-release.exe and
extracted all the files in C:\pthreads.
 
I then went to C:\pthreads\pthreads.2 and ran "nmake
clean VC-static". However, I get the following error:
 
c:\pthreads\pthreads.2\pthread.h(218) : fatal error
C1083: Cannot open include file: 'time.h': No such
file or directory
 
1) So it is ofcourse not able to find time.h whilch
lies in MSVC include folder C:\Program Files\Microsoft
Platform SDK for Windows Server 2003 R2\Include. Can
anyone please tell me what exactly do I need to do
here ?
 
2) Do I need to add all the pthread source files
(which I downloaded and extracted),  to my project ?
 
3) So, I guess once nmake succeeds, it will create
pthreadVCn.lib. Then what do I need to do with it ?
Just copy paste it to the MSVC lib directory ?
 
I would really appreciate if someone can help me out
here !!!!
 
Thanks and regards,
VJ.

Are you using Visual Studio 2005?  I built a project in that, by
adding pthread.c and pthread.h to a project.  Then put "." in
the additional includes path.

There are additional things you have to do to link statically.  
It has been so long that I forgot what they are.  I put them
in my constructors and destructors, but I don't know if you
are programming in C or C++.
