MingW's MSYS is a seperate, isolated linux style environment.

My qemu directory is outside of that, in normal Windows XP area.

So it wouldn't know about those libraries unless they all get copied to the 
same directory as qemu.

I'm an old windows user.... Any thing that says it's okay to drop random 
libraries into the system folder is something that I don't trust!

I'd rather keep them in the qemu directory.  Just like I do with sdl.dll

Good news...

Tonight I decided to test my Mingw/MSys environment.  I built the regular 
SDL version that I've done several times before.

It too failed.

There's not much telling what is causing it to fail.  Qemu seems rather 
sensitive to the slightest change in build environment.

Anyway, the last time I built it succesfully, I make an archive copy of my 
whole msys directory.  Which includes the compiler, and everything.

So I went back to it.  Rebuilt qemu just to make sure.  It worked.

I then copied the directory with your gtk version of qemu over to this new 
version of msys.

After a few problems getting the gtk stuff reinstalled, I rebuilt your gtk 

This time, it's running!  (At least I *assume* it's running.  Everything 
looks identical to the sdl version, so I don't really have any way to know 
for sure.  In other words, there's a regular Windows title bar with nothing 

I haven't done any real testing of it yet, but I thought you'd at least want 
to know that it can be built under Mingw/MSys now.

So far, all I've really done is booted Win 3.11 and Win95.  Opened a few 
guest windows.  Moved the qemu window around a bit, and shut them down.
