using Subversion with MinGW projects

I've been trying to link Subversion into a MinGW project with no
success. So far, I've found two possible approaches.

First, after much research, I found I could use dlltool/reimp to remap
function names from MSVC to MinGW's name decoration. I've managed to
successfully link in some of the basic Subversion functions, such as
svn_client_version. However, it broke as soon as I started pulling in
more files. It looks like the problem is that the intl and neon
libraries don't specify a calling convention, so the names are exported
with the _imp_ prefix. I believe this technique would work if these
libraries would use the stdcall calling convention.

Second, I could link against a MinGW build of Subversion. However, a
quick search of the archives shows that this isn't a trivial matter.

Are there any plans for MinGW development packages? Any suggestions on
where to go from here? Is this a question for the dev mailing list?
