Happy new year all!

For those of you following the GRASS on windows efforts with QGIS, I
have now got GRASS building with all but about 20 modules under
msys/windows. I havent compiled in postgresql support yet.. GRASS
attribute viewing and man page viewing are now working under windows
qgis for me. There are two small issues remaining that I noticed (and
maybe more that others will notice):

1) Every time a layer is added a black console box temporarily appears
and then disappears.
2) When clicking on a tool inthe GRASS toolbox, I get a message like:
   "Warning: cannot find key output"
3) Are any of the unbuilt modules listed below particularly vital to
have in the QGIS 0.8 binary installer for windows?

I will upload a binary for testing tonight or tomorrow.

I compiled with the following options:

./configure --build=i686-pc-mingw32 \
            --with-jpeg-libs=/bin \
            --with-libs=/local/lib/ \
            --with-png-libs=/bin \
            --with-fftw-libs=/local/lib \
            --with-fftw-includes=/local/include \
            --with-includes=/local/include \
            --with-includes=/include \
            --with-tcltk=no \
            --with-postgres=no \

And the end of make report looks like this:
