Here are the steps needed to setup a MinGW on a Red Hat Linux like rpm
based system (Fedora Core, Mandrake Linux, ... should probably work even
on a SuSE Linux)

    * Download the mingw-binutils and mingw-gcc srpm's from
    * Download the mingw-3.0-1.src.rpm srpm from
    * Build the mingw and mingw-binutils rpm's (rpmbuild --rebuild
      $SRPM) and install them.
    * After the above step you can build the mingw-gcc rpm too. Install
    * That's almost everything: you need this patch for wine's configure
      to make it find your mingw binaries.
    * For instructions how to build the Wine tests for Windows see the
      Wine Documentation.
You may want to try your local Red Hat mirror for the above srpm's.
