Talk:Installation on Windows
Are the *-bin.zip files needed? Are not the *-lib files sufficient?

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.
I don't think that the libiconv stuff is necessary anymore, at least not with modern source distributions of libxml2. Also, there should be a warning NOT to install libxslt, as it gets compiled as a static library and its symbols clobber *everything* inside a DLL (hence messing up gnustep-base). It needs to be fixed for mingw (I'm sure the authors would have if they ever used the configure script in MSYS).
- outdated, pull in http://www.gnustep.org/resources/documentation/User/GNUstep/README.MinGW
- delete or convince everyone of putting these kind of things on the wiki and not in some external file.
