I did once try setting up MinGW and MSYS, just to see if I could make it 
work. But after many, many hours of trying to comprehend the terse 
documentation, I finally gave up. It's just too hard to get it to work. 
(I never even got as far as *trying* to build anything; I just couldn't 
install the tools.)
