With the auto-build farm, any dependencies have to be in the OS
package system or CVS, otherwise its too much work to maintain.
There are going to be 10 machines, I don't want to spend my life
maintaining them. MinGW is the only platform where I will build
things from source outside of CVS since there is no other option
currently. On MinGW, stable releases can be built from source
packages, anything else should be in CVS. In other words, if the
HOWTO webpage can have a static link to the exact, unchanging source
tarball, and that tarball can be built automatically and reliably
from scripts/build-libs-for-pd-on-mingw.sh. Otherwise, it needs to
be in CVS.
