Re: How to use CMake with cygwin/mingw toolchain?

Hi Arjen,

I'm talking about the mingw that is included with cygwin, not the
standalone version.
I assume you use mingw-w64.org but some of it's packages are too old.
The mingw that is included with cygwin is updated more frequently, but
it lacks a version of cmake.
Try running the cygwin setup.exe and search for "mingw" and you'll see
all the toolchains plus all the precompiled libraries.  Very nice.
