Sorry, I didn't see that. I just took a look at the code too, looks like 
it depends on some unix code, particularly pwd.h, grp.h and poll.h with 
some references to /dev/dsp.

Without knowing what was changed for it to build under MinGW, you have 
some porting ahead if you really want a MinGW version.

Please ignore if duplicate, my network is acting up.
