[Xorp-hackers] Doubts on compiling routing process

Hello All,

As you know from previous emails, I am trying to migrate a routing 
process into XORP. I partially integrated it to XORP but I am little 
lost with respect to its compilation. Let me explain what I have done so 
far, and what I don't know how to do.

1) I have create a example.tgt file for my routing process and it does 
implement only the common interface. I used the command line below to 
generate  the example.xrls, example_base.cc and example_base.hh:
cpp -I ../interfaces example.tgt |../scripts/tgt-gen
(There is a directory under targets called .deps, should there be an 
example_base.Po file there? How this is done? What should I change in 
the Makefiles)

2) The only change I have made so far in the original routing process is 
to add/remove routes through XORP. This means that, in fact, it is 
something like the static routes, but routes are not received by XRL, 
instead it is computed by the routing process. In a second step I will 
migrate the sending and reception of control packets. The whole code is 
place into xorp-1.0/example. How do I compile it together with XORP? How 
do I generate its Makefile?

Thanks in advance for any help...
