Just tried latest pull from git and noticed the "cannot perform PE

Someone posted a snippet in a thread but I can't find it. If someone posts a top level patch, I'll apply it.

Is there any agreement on how to fix the linker issue under mingw?

Why can't we just exclude mingw from building option roms? Let's just

The signrom problem is independent on mingw32.  This makefile is doing
something that the rest of the build system is careful not to do: compile a
binary and run it as part of the build process.

That's why hxtool is not written in C.
Well, the optionrom directory is a first of its kind: Full source to a
binary blob.
So would you prefer to have signrom be in sh? :-)

Maybe I could come up with a version in brainfuck though ... hum
