MinGW Community, finally there is a method for building GNU emacs with
MinGW and MSYS. The caveats are, you must use the HEAD code from emacs
CVS. You may need to add a date tag to the cvs checkout found in
mingwPORT.beforeconfigure to get a good set of source. I tested with the
source as of 2005-01-24. Also during the installation process, there is a
shortcut created that contains extraneous characters in the Target and
Start in text boxes. You need to right click, choose properties and
remove the two characters q\ from both text boxes.
Right click ``Start Menu\Programs\Gnu Emacs\Emacs'' shortcut
Remove q\ from the string in the Target text box
Remove q\ from the string in the ``Start in'' text box
Good Luck and may your mileage with this script not vary.
