mingw32 and others...

Ah... I've had some success using cygwin32.  I've only actually used it
for some small utilities (file converters and filters, mostly) but I
hear it can be used to compile Eterm.  It's also kinda nice to run
bash... a comfort zone, if you will.

I wasn't aware of any alternatives... I'll play around with mingw32 and
Mesa later.  Right now I have a Windows help file to proof read... you
have no idea how thrilled I am about this.
