I will note that packagers can do the "lazy way" and just follow the
instructions to build a binary and then package that.  I'm doing this
for Ubuntu (for now), as Ubuntu doesn't provide all the Mingw libraries
needed to get the package to build.

So in the meantime Ubuntu users will get a binary package, and once I'm
done packing up the Mingw libraries they'll get a source package that
actually builds the binary properly.

And thank you Vincent, this is great stuff :)
