I don't know why. However, it isn't an accepted project standard, (and
IMO, it needs *considerable* further development, before it is anywhere
near being ready for such acceptance.
Contrast the effects of the two mingw-get commands above; (the first is
mgwport packaged, the second isn't -- I used a much simpler home brewed
script framework to create it). Until mgwport can deliver a structure
similar to that I've used for lua, I will not consider it acceptable.
