Bullet stuff - thelusiv - 02-20-2009

Two suggestions:

* Since Bullet source is now included in the VDrift build process, why not move the needed files to src/bullet (and include/bullet) and check them into our SVN repository? This would remove the need for the Bullet tarball in the SVN root and the confusion this has occasionally caused. It would simplify the build process further, and as new versions of Bullet are released developers could simply put the new files into src/bullet and "svn ci".

* Since the new release does not need all the extra Bullet compile directions, can we remove the "old Bullet compile" directions from the Compiling page on the wiki? It is an awful lot of clutter that is irrelevant to the latest release.

Sure, sounds good. Are you volunteering to do this? :-)

How about moving that section into a separate wiki page and putting a link to it on the Compiling page?

i build against bullet from svn (and have been doing this for quite a while now). i don't really think we should include bullet files with vdrift but that's only my personal opinion. anyway, it's not that hard to modify the scons files to use a different bullet source directory.

Hmm, I might be able to make a way to set the Bullet src dir through a scons option. The tricky part is, the path is relative to VDrift/src/ in src/SConscript, and relative to VDrift/ in SConstruct. So it might be tricky to make it accept a relative path as well as a full path.
