Thanks for the efforts to make a native Windows Grass version:-)

I've tried to download and install the 6.3 CVS, 
September 15, 2006 release, following the 
instructions at http://geni.ath.cx/grass.html, 
but I'm facing some difficulties. The 
inst_grass.bat installation does not work for me. 
Which directory is it referred to in section 3 of 
the installation instructions or does it not matter?

I tried to manually copy the grass.bat file to 
the C:\msys\1.0\local directory. However, in this 
case I cannot enter GRASS as I receive, among 
others, a "g.gisenv - Unable to find" error 
message and the "libintl3.dll" file cannot be 
found, when selecting a previously configured 
"Location". Further, I cannot find any epsg code 
file and if I manually add a known and valid epsg 
code I receive an error message that the 
libintl3.dll file is missing. This file, AFAIK, belongs to the cygwin package.

Presumably I've done something wrong with the installation.

I would appreciate any inputs or clarifications 
on how to properly install the native 6.3 CVS 
GRASS Windows version (the 
http://geni.ath.cx/grass/grass.zip file is 
time-stamped 16:40 Sep 17, 2006, whereas the 
file is time-stamped 12:28 Sep 18, 2006. They 
seem to have the same file size - any other differences?).
