That seems reasonable.

And that is GOOD! I have a configure script that runs configure.bat
and then a Perl script to take the addpm.exe line from my makefile.
Reason? Running

  (nmake install) 2>&1 | tee boot.log

often hangs exactly at the addpm call.

I agree with that too.

Which version? I have an older one that I found somewhere, but it is
AFAICS not maintained anymore.

BTW, I've seen you distribute a binary Emacs for W32, and I've seen a
README that says:

    The image libraries can be fetched from gnuwin32.org. Below is a list
    of the needed dll-files and where you can find them:
    The image libraries dll-files are included in the Emacs bin directory.

It is OK to distribute binary builds of the image libraries and not to
distribute directly the sources in your webpage?
