This sounds like it might be useful for PSPP porting/testing on
mingw, although I have not actually followed the link to see how
well it actually works.

Dear programmers,

in the last 7 days I created a nice script whose version 1.0
I'm releasing now to the public:

This script compiles a MinGW cross compiler and cross compiles
many free libraries such as GD and SDL. Thus, it provides a nice
MinGW cross compiling environment. All necessary source packages
are downloaded automatically.

Difference to similar scripts and projects:

* kept very simple (not cryptic),
  thus easy to adapt and to extend

* builds many free libraries in addition to the cross compiler

* directly uses official source packages,
  thus ensuring the whole build mechanism is transparent

* downloads all needed packages

* is able to retrieve the new version numbers of all packages

* creates libraries to be statically linked,
  no DLL hell

Have fun!
