Paolo, Carson. Thanks for answering. This is what I wrote on November 12:
I've been trying to build QGIS with VC++ 2008 Express and I'm following 
the notes [1], but when I build QGIS using the ALL_BUILD target, I 
always get this error:
/3>Generating qgssearchstringparser.cpp
3>*C:\Archivos de programa\GnuWin32\bin\bison.exe: m4: Invalid argument*
3>Project : error PRJ0019: A tool returned an error code from 
"Generating qgssearchstringparser.cpp"
2>Generating ui_qgsconfigureshortcutsdialog.h
2>Generating ui_qgscompositionwidgetbase.h
2>Generating ui_qgscompositionbase.h
2>Generating ui_qgscomposervectorlegendbase.h
2>Generating ui_qgscomposertablewidgetbase.h
2>Generating ui_qgscomposershapewidgetbase.h
3>Build log was saved at 
3>qgis_core - 1 error(s), 0 warning(s)

any suggestions?


In this case, it got no response.

Here, I wrote on November 3:
I would like to start with QSIG+QT in Windows XP. Now, I am trying to 
make a plugin with c++ in QT creator. Does anybody have an example of 
.pro file?


In this case, only Matt just told me, but the problem was still there. 
Thanks Matt.

I'm sure the people on the list trying to help, but I think these 
problems are very common error, however, we are not getting good 
solutions. Perhaps because we are not very explicit (Rafa, Muhammad, 
Vanessa, ..)
I think for community growth QGis (like the entire FOSS) is important 
for knowledge sharing.
Paolo, I understand you have to pay for that knowledge, in fact it was I 
who asked you budget for a course this morning.
