I’ve been trying to figure out for a couple of days how to build the source of the DXX-Rebirth project, a F/OSS engine implementation of Descent I and II, under Haiku. However, I’m not very familiar with the Scons build system that the project uses for building.
All of the needed tools and libraries are available in HaikuPorts (full list on GitHub here), which is great, but I have to figure out how to add Haiku support into the Sconstruct file itself so that the build will succeed.
Can anyone share a pointer or two about how to work with Sconstruct files and adding Haiku support to one? I’d love to see DXX-Rebirth working in Haiku, and it would add to the growing list of games available for the platform.
