The Readme.MINGW file and the GNUstep on Windows Wiki page

--prefix=/GNUstep. I don't mind either of them, but we should be
consistent. Otherwise people end up with two GNUstep installations.

Yes. There is no native layout in Windows (At least not that a normal Windows user is aware of), so the GNUstep layout is probably the best.

It looks like the xml2-config script in the mingw/bin directory is not
set up correctly. Changing its first variable to point to the real
directory (I think it was just /mingw) solves the problem.

That's probably because I cross-compiled everything to save time. I really haven't tested out compiling things on Windows except for some simple stuff. I should probably test that more.

Here a problem with the type boolean that gets defined in two imported
header files needs to be resolved. I worked around this by hacking in a
#define boolean JPEG_BOOL into the libjpeg.h file.

After all that I still have problem starting up an application. This is
caused by gui not finding the backend. I expect that this is caused by
some unusual language settings (German) on my computer. At least this is the only hint I get from GNUstep. I report back on that issue as soon as
I find out more.
