[Mingw-users] Unable to run x86-mingw32-build.sh on ubuntu




I am trying to install mingw32 under ubuntu 14.04 64-bit, to compile w32 programs with eclipse that run under wine, which runs existing w32 programs fine.

I have downloaded x86-mingw32-build-1.0-sh.tar.bz2 (dated 2009-03-16 12:41Z) from https://sourceforge.net/projects/mingw/files/Installer/
The file x86-mingw32-build.sh is 7478 bytes and dated 2009-03-16 12:28:22

When I run x86-mingw32-build.sh I get an error:
$ sh x86-mingw32-build.sh i586-pc-mingw32
x86-mingw32-build.sh: 130: /[XXX]/x86-mingw32-build-1.0/x86-mingw32-build.sh.functions: Syntax error: Bad function name

Lines 126-32 of x86-mingw32-build.sh.functions seem to be ... :
# Some of the following functions can use the `local' built in command,
# if it is available; make sure we have a fall back, if it isn't ...
#
test -z "`exec 2>/dev/null; try(){ local x; }; try || echo no`" || \
local()
# ... by making it a function equivalent to the `null' command.
{ :; }

Any assistance in getting mingw32 installed and running under eclipse would be appreciated
Thanks
Regards
brewmanz
