GNUstep Development installer 0.5.1
This package contains all files necessary to build GNUstep base on a
Windows system, optionally building and installing the shared base
library as well.

It will install MinGW libraries and the MSYS shell to be able to build
stuff. It will install all sources of GNUstep make, ffcall, libobjc
and base as well as iconv binaries.

The versions this installer contains are as follows:

base version 1.10.0 (stable)    - gnustep-base-1.10.0.tar.gz
make version 1.10.0 (stable)    - gnustep-make-1.10.0.tar.gz
libobjc version 1.3.0           - gnustep-objc-1.3.0.tar.gz
ffcall version 1.9 (*)          - ffcall-1.10.tar.gz
iconv version 1.9.1             -
MinGW version 3.1.0-1           - MinGW-3.1.0-1.exe
MSYS version 1.0.10             - MSYS-1.0.10.exe
Microsoft C runtime DLL         - msvcr70.dll
GDB version 6.0                 - gdb-6.0-20031011

*)  I suspect that ffcall is actually version 1.10
    but that the maintainer forgot to update the version
    number in the ffcall.spec file.

It is best to let this installer put its files in a fresh, empty
directory, even when upgrading from a previous version. When you
install to a directory already containing GNUstep files, problems are
almost guaranteed. And it is not tested anyway.

The installer doesn't handle an already set GNUSTEP_SYSTEM_ROOT
environment variable gracefully yet. Is is best to have not set this
environment variable at all prior to running the installer. The
installer doesn't mind if it is set to the directory you're going to
install it in anyway (so installing to x:\GNUstep when
GNUSTEP_SYSTEM_ROOT=x:\GNUstep\System should work).
