Are the *-bin.zip files needed? Are not the *-lib files sufficient?

Installation quirks

I had to do:

configure CPPFLAGS=-I/C/GNUstep/msys/1.0/include LDFLAGS=-I/C/GNUstep/msys/1.0/lib

to get the gui build going.

Also, ffcall wouldn't compile, so it was necessary to copy one from an older GNUstep installation on windows. I will make a zip of this and put in on the GNUstep ftp site so that others don't run into the same issue.
