I didnt say that it is a prob to compile - but it is real work to put
together a script / makefile / whatever to deal with 4 different build
flavours, set all paths correctly, copy files together etc. Sure this
would be way easier on Linux with cross tools and configure magic - but
I am not aware of any Linux distro which always has latest dependent
libs; they are almost anytime 2 or three versions behind; so in order to
provide most recent stuff I have to either to it on Win32, or update
cross dependent libs self, and then there comes up the nightmare. Also I
have no time to re-install my hosts every 3 months.
