The cvs version works fine for me. The 21.1 version did not work as
Jari described.

I do the following to build emacs with the mingw port.

$ cvs -z3 -d:pserver:address@hidden:/cvsroot/emacs co emacs
$ cd emacs/nt
$ configure.bat --with-gcc --no-opt

# Here you must setup gcc that it uses the mingw port. I uses the
# separated mingw distribution but I noticed that it is also part of
# the cygwin distribution. So maybe it's possible only to switch on
# the mingw gcc flag. But I did not try this yet. Also debugging is
# still a problem for me.

$ make
$ export emacs_dir='f:/home/maierh/cvs/emacs'
$ ../src/oo/i386/emacs.exe -q --no-site-file

# GNU Emacs (i386-mingw-nt5.0.2195) of 2001-12-11 on HESTIA
