My projects strongly depend on automake, autoconf, cvs, libtool etc. So
using cygwin as a build envoronment is a natural choice to me. And since
I need PostgreSQL as well, pure MinGW does not suit all my needs. If I
don't succeed to build my application with cygwin within three weeks, I
will switch to cross compiling (I thought it would be easier to do it
Just FYI. My environment is:
- Gtk+ / Gtk-- / Glade--
- Embedded SQL (PostgreSQL)
