A while back I posted a patch to MinGW
(http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=1558980&group_id=2435&atid=302435)
before I realized that w32api is now hosted on Cygwin. I resubmitted a
patch but have gotten no response:
http://cygwin.com/ml/cygwin-patches/2006-q3/msg00075.html.

The rest of the changes require investigation of some MinGW build issues
with gettext/libintl. (Subversion isn't realizing that it's installed.)
I haven't had a chance to look into that.
