I don't know enough about ODIN to be able to usefully comment, apart =
from to say that extra layers of translation generally add extra layers =
of complication (we've had no end of trouble with cygwin/mingw on =
Win32), and in this case you'd be going through 2 layers (mingw + ODIN) =
which could well be more trouble than it's worth.

On the other hand, you'd need something like mingw for OS/2 - does such =
a beast exist?
