since Cygwin should work with that? Just wondering...

It does work with this. For me it was also sufficent to replace the entries in with the /cygdrive/c/... notation and then things worked fine. Still I think as Cygwin now supports c:\... as well, we need to support this in base also.

In the meantime I also did give the GNUstep MinGW installer a try and this works nicely for base, but has none of the libraries for gui and back included. So I tried to download libtiff, libjpeg and so on. I used the libtiff from he offical MinGW repository and this still does not work. As I don't have access to my mail from my window environment I needed to boot Linux again to find out which one to use. My

This is from the README.MinGW. I'm pretty sure these are the ones I have and they work...
libtiff, libjpeg, and zlib
