Hi, I checked out the latest version and looked at the changes. All the
changes seem to be ok except the INSTALL.

MinGW no longer seems to provide a batch script for setting the
environment, so you have to make sure yourself the
mingw32-make is in PATH.

Attached a patch for INSTALL documentation.
