I have looked at svn-externals, it doesn't work for this.  I need to  
make changes to the code.  I beg you to walk a mile in my shoes, then  
judge.  At least trying setting up and documenting a MinGW build  
environment on Windows, and you'll see why I am doing this.

SourceForge is providing tools for us to write software.  I am using  
the tools exactly as they are designed and it is saving me and others  
lots of work.  Where's the harm?
