I've just asked him if he can partecipate to the discussion to explain this...

No problems with mingw build. I've already built grass6_devel from
scratch, and it almost works (better then the one I've built against
1 - wxdigit and wxnviz don't work, but I know that Martin is working
on this right now
2 - Marco told me that there soudl be made some changes to update the
build system. I still have to dig in this, but there are reasons to
hope that Marco, maybe, will find some time to work on this...
3 -qgis bindings. With osgeo4w, on windows Vista, qgis crashes
whatever you try to do with the plugin: db.exe returns and makes Qgis
crash. I don't know yet if it's the same problem with memory
management or what else.
In any case the questions remain:
1 - continue to build grass with MingW?
1a: build it against MinGW built libs (not osgeo4w)?
1b: build it against vc built libs (osgeo4w)?
2 - build Qgis with vc (osgeo4w) and solve the bindings problems with
Grass: 1a or 1b?
