Review Request: mingw32-runtime - MinGW Windows cross-compiler runtime and root filesystem

SRPM URL: http://www.annexia.org/tmp/mingw/mingw-runtime-3.14-2.fc10.src.rpm
Description: MinGW Windows cross-compiler runtime and root filesystem
Incomplete packaging guidelines:
This contains the MinGW root filesystem and some core libraries.
You SRPM link should be fc8. Also, have you any plans to add some C++ libraries? ie boost or gtkmm?
One further note, pthreads would be a welcome addition.

Excellent, your a star. Thanks for the update.

I packaged up win32-pthreads separately:

I did gtkmm - it's in our development repository.
Boost is a fscking nightmare. People who write their own build
systems should be shot. Or maybe since they have to program in
C++ they've been punished enough already.
I have spoken to certain people in the #boost irc chat room and have compiled boost against your packages. It works with some additions to the boost.build scripts. I'll try publish such things in a bit.
Do you have a spec file for boost, re comment 7?
I have a pretty rubbish one:
It builds just enough to work with Inkscape, but it extremely hacky.
I don't have time to look at it at the moment. The person I spoke to in #boost was volodya. It was also very hacky. There were some tickets made for it on https://zigzag.lvk.cs.msu.su:7813/boost.build/ but I don't remember which ones.
