I configured a virtual machine with manjaro 20, installed all the 
dependencies for Arch, downloaded the gambas source code, created the 
component with a template and executed the pertinent commands so that 
the structure was created, then overwritten the files from the 
gambas-bindings project and edit the files configure.ac and makefile.am 
the interface c_dwg.c copy it from the repo.
Finally make && sudo make install
Gambas now works on the system but the gb.dwg component is not listed
I accept help :-)

The code is here:


Thanks a lot

Martín Belmonte.
