It sounds like you have cross-built and installed all the dependencies
okay.   Just a few problems with the Windows/installers target which
I wrote.

     is just an exercise in frustration because
         cp `$(CC) -print-file-name=libwinpthread-1.dll` $@
     just prints libwinpthread-1.dll even though I do have that dll in

This sounds like Fedora trying to be too clever for its own good -
a similar general problem to what Harry was struggling with.

     and because
         cp $(environment_dir)/bin/*.dll $@
     is busted because it expands to
     cp $(echo -fstack-protector -lssp | /usr/bin/sed -e 's/^-L//' -e
     's|/lib$||')/bin/*.dll Windows/nsis-bin
     which obviously isn't helpful.

Yes, I had a nasty feeling that this LDFLAGS/sed based expression might
pose some portability problems.
     It's very frustrating that there are so many Windows users but no
     Windows developers.

That's just life I'm afraid.  Everybody wants something, but very few are
prepared to do any work in order to get it.
