Hi Christopher,

By the way, I really like the GitHub updates.

Hm, I can't follow you...

You don't like the Cygwin-based binaries because of the dependency on the
cvywin1.dll. I fully understand and I personally don't like the
Cygwin-based binaries neither. But I don't see why you don't just build the
libraries with your native-Win32 binaries. I know that it works as I do it
all the time.

The Makefiles are explicitly designed to work with cmd.exe as shell and to
not depend on any(!) *IX tool. Just follow

Bascially you only have to put the content of
in some directory, shouldn't hurt.

The Makefiles even contain a call to MSVS to build the native-Win32
binaries before building the libraries so you can do it all in one shot by
just calling the top-level Makefile from cmd.exe without any goal.

Again: Presume this very scenario to be supported best as it's my personal
scenario ;-)
