I'm just back in office. I'm 455 mails late... but I'll start to work on the
new GRASS build right now.

The "blocking" thing is related to the "building environment update" I
planned; in fact, some problems in the GRASS building are generated by some
MSYS/MinGW lacks... that's why I decided to replace my current MSYS
installation with a fully updated one... and here that's the problem! the
MSYS project is poorely documented, and the 1.0.11 version of the istaller,
even if available on the repository, is not officially present in the
project list... but it seems to be more recent (and bug fixer) than the
currently proposed one... even if not fully updated! and the updated are a
little be confused (in the way you cannot just unpack the new files because
some updates overwrite each other creating messy and buggy installations).

I've been reading some articles and mails and I'm figuring how to solve this
messy situation...

I think I can give you a precise dead-line in about one or two days.
I'm sorry, but I also have my regular work here ;) ...
I'll do as best as I can.

Regards... and happy new year :)
