There is an .exe which doesn't require dependencies that can be grabbed 
from http://code.google.com/p/maphew/wiki/OsgeoFromScratch. It lags 
behind the svn version a bit, the most notable lack at the moment being 
that it can't read certain bz2 files 

((reads next messsage))

Oh I see you already found the from scratch recipe ;-)
sending this on anyway to note the bzip2 flaw. I'll try and scrape some 
time together to generate a new .exe soon.
