I would like to say a thank-you as well. I only wrote to Mingw-devel and R-devel
(an R package I regularly cross-compile for), but I have started distributing
my cross-compiler rpm's a few days ago, and I learned from yours.


Mine is just one giant package put under /opt/mingw - there are two other
sourceforge projects (besides mingw itself, which does not) which distribute
cross-compiler rpms - one doing 4.3 and one doing 4.0.

As my primary purpose is compiling and build the windows build of something I 
wrote, I chose to keep it simple - it is just one rpm (unlike the other 
projects), and it is just a simple wrapper around the cross-build script
rather than trying to scavenge it.

Hope it is useful to the people.
