[Mingw-users] newbie errors

ok, I tried make, fails.

This looked promising, but... second step fails, same error.

This is just crazy. The Aardvark guys (Total Phase) even advertise using MinGW, show a list of simple instructions, but they don't work. So far nothing does. I guess this is why sw guys make so much $$$, they know all the secret handshakes to get this stuff to compile.   =)

us poor hardware guys get to beat our heads against the wall while the sw guys point and laugh.   =)
