Thanks David and Camm. I've succesfully built gcl with the latest
Mingw/Msys without pain. A simple checkout and a configure worked fine.
Yes, I've noticed too that the option to disable xdr was broken, I didn't
mention this fact in my previous email.
Now I will try to finish the build process and the creation of the
installer (just to learn how to do it).

I think we should update the information given by install.win32, they are
obsolete in some points and now the procedure is easier, at least for the
gcl-related part.

Stefano
