[gdal-dev] Building with MSYS/MingGW

Hi all,

I've never been able to get GDAL to build with MSYS/MinGW. However, it 
appears others here have, so here's my questions:

What versions of MSYS and MinGW are you using?

Do you configure with libtool or without (if with, did you need to apply 
a patch?)

Can you give me an example ./configure line that works for you?

I'm running:
WindowsXP service pack2
MSYS version 1.0.10
MinGW 5.1.3 (gcc 3.4.2)

I've tried building the 1.5 release, and various versions of SVN, both 
with and without libtool.

Any tips would be appreciated.
