Hi folks!

I have now found the instructions for building gnustep with MSYS+MinGW, and things are working much better than before with cygwin and so forht (Duh!). However, there still are some minor wrinkles to get out, but nothing really problematic. What *is* problematic is that make always restarts the build from scratch. Not too pleasant on Virtual PC...

Any ideas what could be causing the build to re-start from scratch each time, even if the previus make failed in the final link phase? One thing I noticed is that it removes and re-copies the headers each time. Are there dependencies on the build-locations of the headers?

re-copying the headers is a dumb hack. Perhaps this should be improved. It shouldn't re-compile everything though. Perhaps just 10 or 20 files.

In any case, you could avoid this by compiling from a subdirectory:

cd Source
