GAP 4.9 will come with a completely rewritten build system that will simplify our packaging. It will also enable building GAP as a library, so that we can get rid of our separate libgap package.

The branch to be attached to this ticket is a preliminary experiment from a fork of Markus to be merged in the devel version of GAP.

Fetching the Markus's GAP sources:

    git clone $LIBGAP
    cd $LIBGAP
    git remote add markuspf
    git fetch markuspf
    git checkout -b markuspf/hpc-merge-libgap
    make bootstrap-pkg-minimal

Testing libgap:

    ./configure --enable-libgap
    make -j4 libgap
    make test-libgap

Build and install a tardist for Sage, and rebuild the spkg:

    make distclean
    make manuals
    make clean

    (cd ..; tar zcvf $SAGE/upstream/$GAP.tar.gz --exclude .git $GAP)

    sage --package fix-checksum
    sage -f gap                      # -s

Copy GAP's header files, as well as gen/config.h to $SAGE/local/include

Fix them to adapt the include path: #include <src/...> -> #include <gap/...>


    sage -b
