Static library missing when compiling TBB with MinGW on Windows 7
I would like to use TBB together with a project which is compiled using MinGW on Windows. Therefore I need to compile TBB with MinGW as well. I've downloaded the source package, unpacked it to a separate directory and called
mingw2-make -compiler=gcc -runtime=mingw
The compilation is successful and the DLL files are being placed in the build/windows_ia32_gcc_mingw_debug/release folders. However I can't find any static libraries like tbb.lib or tbb_debug.lib. Just the dynamic libraries were built. But I need the static ones as well, right?
When I'm trying to compile a small sample TBB program using a concurrent_map, I'm getting a bunch of unresolved externals. Therefore I was assuming that I need to link the static libraries (which is also mentioned in the tutorial).
