John meant to send these back to the lists, not to me directly.

My memory is a bit hazy, and the PC with it all on isn't available.
Well, I have remote access to the PC but the hard-drive with it all on
isn't in the machine :-(
I created a 2nd MSYS environment and then rebuilt all the required
libraries (a small subset of the ones required for the 2K/XP/etc.
Maybe I can get my brother to swap the drives out ...

The Makefile tests for an environment variable: BDIST_WIN9X which, if
you search for it, shows which dependencies are not required.
Unfortunately, I can't remember how I invoked make to disable the
missing options, sorry. But I think it mostly auto-detects the missing
DLLs. Not sure about fribidi, that wasn't around when I last tried
building the 9x/ME version.
Sorry I can't be more helpful. I'm sure I have some notes somewhere, but
I'm not at home for 2 months yet.
