Great! I tried that, too. But haven't gotten to pursue it further in the
last months.

You can safely eliminate fileblocks.o - AFAIR I just created a dummy one in
case I compiled under mingw32. Just one part of the autoconf magic I didn't
understand at all ...

Btw. I really got lost with the pgen.exe stuff :-/ Hope you'll get further.
Maybe we can try to work together? What do you base your port on? 2.2.1 or
-CVS? I'm not sure working together works with stuff like this, though -
it's probably got to be a one-man fight against autoconf ;-)
