Compiling OBOS source in Windows (XP)

    I've seen that there are some who wants to know how to compile the source using Linux and I've also read that there should be a howto on the subject. I admit that I havn't checked it out yet, but since there seems to be a general interest of compiling the source on other platforms I might just aswell ask for a howto for Windows.

    I have the following software on my windows machine that might help out:

    - Windows XP
    - gcc-2.95.2 crt-something version (not wincrt)
    - ftjam-2.3.5-win32
    - cygwin (version unknown)

    Jam was a little tricky to find a binary for so I provide a link for those who are interested:

      Jam should be no problem. Even the Jam source code that is part of the cvs can be compiled without problems. So there seems to be no need for another binary.

      I am now trying to make the compiling of the kernel work...

      Does gcc-2.95.2-cygb20.tar.gz sound about right?

      Nah I thing the mingw32 is the right one...
