What to say -- this is simply spectacular!  I haven't gone through all
the steps yet to verify them, and may have future comments if I get to
that, but this level of polish and detail is simply way beyond anything
else we manage to accomplish here!

I do think the screenshots are probably central given the installers out
there, though I'm sure this must be a pain to create and maintain.  Do
you want to check in the component files for this in the source tree

One thing I did not remember having to fiddle with to the extent you
have is the path variable.  It seemed to be setup automatically on
clicking the c:\MinGW\msys\1.0\msys.bat icon.

For diehard emacs enthusiasts, I could explain how to setup egg and to
set the mingw bash shell as an emacs subshell if desired.  This is
probably only useful to me, I imagine.

It is worth us considering how many people are actually going to try to
build gcl on windows as apart from download a cas built atop it.  I
suspect a tiny fraction of those who will build on some unix like
machine, due to the culture.

Take care,
