Dear All

Apologies for recent noise over my inability to build LuaTeX 0.80 on
Windows. I finally got LuaTeX 0.80 to build
but had to  re-install MinGW/MSYS:

MinGW from here:
http://mingw-w64.yaxm.org/doku.php/download/win-builds

MSYS from here:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/mingw-w64/files/External%20binary%20packages%20%28Win64%20hosted%29/MSYS%20%2832-bit%29/
--- downloaded (MSYS-20111123.zip

After that, a fresh SVN checkout as well and it worked. Build scripts no
longer seems to run makeinfo
but I have no idea why this suddenly works.  I just accept that it did.

Warm wishes
Graham
