[GRASS-dev] WinGRASS-6.3.0RC6: First Impressions

I just built RC6; first impressions:

1) make procedure fails creating symbolic links d.paint.labels, r.cats and
p.out.vrml; as temporary solution I fixed the problem manually creating
symbolic links after make procedure; it seems that MinGW needs the full path
for both target and link name...

2) About GRASS (from Help menu) works now

3) I opened some exixsting projects, applied some commands and used NVIZ;
all seems to works fine; good job folks! ;-)
More testing is needed, but at the moment I don't have enough time :-(
I'm planning self installer release for tomorrow (with new zipped MSYS
environment, readme files and guide updates)

4) I started the new python GUI: the first screen is OK (very beautiful...
but the fonts seem to be a little bit too small for me... probably I need
new glasses :-D), but loading a mapset it returns an error and exits; the
first time it reported and error with a *classic* windows message box, then,
when I restarted it, it displayed the following *only MSYS* message:

That's all at the moment.
