Thanks for the offer, but it works fine now. I now have unified
sources with a bunch of #ifdef __MINGW32__  statements thrown in,
and the only things that don't compile for win are IPC (the dvi
output to a named pipe) and regular expressions (don't have a
cross-compiled regex library yet).

The latter one is simple to fix, don't know about the former
one. I am not even sure if named pipes _can_ work on windows.
