I tried yesterday to compile it under cygwin. Everything except QSA
compiled fine (though I know where the problem is and I am surprised
it have to affected some linux configuratuions - it's calling the
wrong qmake). But whether the compiled program will also execute and
be (reasonably) stable ... welll, we'll see. If we'll be lucky, there
might be a windows (cygwin) build in few days .... maybe ...
Compiling as native windows app (without cygwin) - well, that would
be a different story. Dont' expect anything like that soon ...
