But that's the advantage of a cross compiler. You can develop
software for Win95 under Linux! If I have to compile under Win95, I loose
all the advantages of Linux: X, emacs, fvwm, etc.

Well, I think the maintainer of the win32 packages should have! I tried to
contact him but didn't get a response, yet.

I'm thinking about what sense it makes to have these Debian packages with
a cross compiler, that's lacking the necessary DLL! Getting the source
from cygnus and compiling it under Linux is not a satisfying solution,
since that's what these Debian packages are good for.

Is there someone out there that _uses_ the crosscompiler from the Debian

Perhaps I should report the missing of the DLL as a bug, since it makes
those packages useless.

Any hints?
