Subject: Re: [Caml-list] building OCaml under MinGW
I tried this week with mingw, but didn't manage. After solving a few problems discussed on this list, I didn't succeed in finding out why the file ocamlrun.a wasn't present. I used the CVS source files in my last attempt, but that didn't help. So I'm hopelessly stranded, and on the point of giving up.

I have a new version of mingw (downloaded this monday). I needed to change a few variables (e.g. BYTECC in config/Makefile) so that my WebObjects installation would not hijack the %PATH% and force through an older version of gcc.

Oh, and by the way: If I should be so lucky as to manage to compile it, and then to build Windows native executables, will client machines still need mingw to run these files? I.e. will these Windows native executables really be Windows native executables, and not rely on any third party software?
