I was thinking about trying to compile to test the patch for this bug
according to http://smithii.com/aria2 it sounds like it's better to compile on linux?
how difficult is it to get setup? (I'm looking at the README...)
Debian has mingw32 package. It has cross compiler for mingw32.
I once setup it and compiled aria2 for cross compiling. You need depended libraries, I think usually they were found in cygwin site.
