Duh, obviously it has nothing to do with WINGISBASE. The problem is path

content of dist.i686-pc-mingw32/etc/fontcap:

sed command in the Makefile:

        -sed 's#'${GISBASE}'#'${INST_DIR}'#g' ${GISBASE}/etc/fontcap >

which during install translates to

/c/grasssrc/grass-6.3.0RC1/dist.i686-pc-mingw32/etc/fontcap >

fontcap entries need to use windows syntax under windows for gis.m to see
the font.

So, we need a specific sed command for windows, but do we have a variable
for GISBASE in windows path syntax ? If not how to create it ?

That's what I'm doing manually now for the binaries, but it would be great
to have this to happen automatically. Is this possible in the Makefile ?
