Is it reasonable to download and install all of the packages listed in the MinGW Download page:
GCC
MSYS Developer Tool Kit
MSYS
MinGW Runtime
MinGW Utilities
Windows API
binutils
make
gdb source code
And be able to compile the GDB source code?
 
I attempted to do this, and quickly discovered I did not have:
some type of termcap.  Either libtermcap or ncurses
basic items such as ioctl.h
Is there a complete list of all the libraries needed to compile the current gdb source code?
 
I am currently searching the archives for clues.
