not the answer to your question, but some thoughts about the topic.

As long as the automatic build of Paul Millar works, there is not reason to 
have a second winetest binary for nearly the same git/cvs source of the 
tests. One binary a day is enough. If you check http://test.winehq.org/data/ 
you will see that we miss often tests results for some windows platforms.

If building the winetest binary fails. Someone needs to look into the reason 
anyway. In almost all cases its a missing import in a library the test ist 
linked against. So first "our mingw environment" needs to be fixed. Just 
running another automatic build will fail with the same error as the build of 

Its not hard for me to do the manual build. I just need some webspace to put 
the stuff on. And i need to know what needs to be modified in the source 
before the build (somehow the build date need to be patched into the source). 
Also the question is how the new build is announce to the public (hope that 
it si not the case that it appears on astro.gla.ac.uk).
