I forgot to mention, the list of libs installed on the MinGW build  
machine is here:


It is possible to add more.  Basically, you need to import the sources  
into the 'pure-data/sources' tree in pure-data SVN.  That's the tree  
for the MinGW setup.  You can check the import-tarball.sh script to  
see the process for importing a tarball there.  When adding libs, the  
build-libs-on-mingw.sh script should build and install everything  

And lastly, on Windows, its best to do SVN operations in Cygwin via  
ssh, then run builds using MinGW via rdesktop.

Looking at things from a more basic level, you can come up with a more  
direct solution... It may sound small in theory, but it in practice,  
it can change entire economies.     - Amy Smith
