 for the record some interesting notes from the dev-ML:


 Realistically speaking, it will take a few more
 weeks for me to complete and test the build chain.
 We plan to release the resulting binaries with
 gvSIG CE 1.0 (which will ship with GRASS 6.4.3 as
 a geoprocessing backend). From that point forward,
 i.e. GRASS 6.4.4, it might be feasible to base GRASS
 Windows releases on the gvSIG CE build chain:
 no more pesky VC runtime DLLs!

 Also, in case you are not using it yet:
 "Dependency Walker" is really helpful for
 locating DLL-related problems.
