MinGW-2.0.0-2.exe does not contain make.exe
MinGW-1.1.tar.gz does. Is this intended?

    See the home page (www.mingw.org) or the release notes:

    https://sourceforge.net/project/shownotes.php?
    release_id=38019

    It says that make.exe is renamed as mingw32-make.exe.
    The reason for this is that many (perhaps most) people use
    MSYS or Cygwin make.exe, which have features that Mingw
    make does not. If you wish to use the Mingw version of
    make, rename or copy mingw32-make.exe to make.exe.

    I've uploaded MinGW-2.0.0-3.exe to take care of the missing mingw32-make.exe program.
