If possible.  Ideally, anyone with a Windows machine should be able to follow 
the steps and build their own file.  It's important to 
document the steps, including things like "don't forget to use 
--disable-cygwin", or sooner or later you may forget yourself. :)

Usually things aren't quite this formal in free software projects.  But since 
DotGNU is growing, and a lot of things need to happen to put out a release, 
it is probably time to add a few procedures.  This will only get worse as 
other packages are added to the mix.  But we certainly won't have any more 
procedures than are strictly necessary to solve the problem.

No way.  Every little bit helps.  One less thing for me to do. :-)
