Ah, but if I want Unix, I know where to find it ;)

Mingw is relevant because it's a straightforward way for people to get
a good working GCC on their computers, especially with the Dragon
distribution. 15Meg download, they have a C compiler.  But they won't
have anything more than GNU make, and that's often not enough. This is
why things like CMake are definitely relevant here, even though it
makes my eyes bleed.
