MinGW64.datfor a 64-bit install, or
MinGW32.datfor a 32-bit install. This file specifies complete paths to all the MinGW binutils needed by ATLAS, one per line. The first line points to your MinGW
ar, the second to
ranlib, the third to your
gcc, and the fourth to your
gfortran. If you are planning to configure to not use a FORTRAN compiler (using the
--nof77flag), then you can omit the gfortran line.
Each line must be appropriately escaped if it contains embedded spaces or parens, as Windows often does. This may or may not work, and if you have problems getting it to work, I recommend using logical links to create working paths that don't embed these characters.
Here is an example of such a file as created for a 64-bit install using the
MinGW compilers provided by cygwin, saved to
/usr/bin/x86_64-w64-mingw32-ar.exe /usr/bin/x86_64-w64-mingw32-ranlib.exe /usr/bin/x86_64-w64-mingw32-gcc.exe /usr/bin/x86_64-w64-mingw32-gfortran.exeNote that the entire file should be 4 (or 3 if gfortran isn't used) lines, with no blank lines.
