P4DTI issue job001702

Titlebuild script doesn't check dependencies
Assigned userNick Barnes
DescriptionThe P4DTI release build script requires various things, for instance (on Windows) cygwin cp, winzip, info-zip. It doesn't check the presence of these things. Some of them (e.g. cygwin diff, which is not part of the current default cygwin install) will silently break the build. Some of them (e.g. cygwin cp) will noisily break the build, but only after a long period (about 30 minutes for a remote VM build).
AnalysisIdentify dependencies and run checks on all of them. Eliminate unnecessary dependencies (e.g. winzip).
