Issues with mingw32 (Linux to Windows cross-compiler)



Debian have packaged mingw32 as a cross-compiler so you can target
Windows as an embedded platform, building *.DLLs and *.EXEs from your
Linux box:

  http://packages.debian.org/source/sid/mingw32

There's already an RPM package for this for Fedora and in my limited
testing it seems to work:

  http://mirzam.it.vu.nl/mingw/

HOWEVER ... This package can't be built directly from source because
it has a circular dependency.  As described on that page:

  "Rebuilding from the source packages must be done in a strict
  order. There's a circular dependency or bootstrapping problem in that
  you need installed mingw-runtime and mingw-w32api packages to build
  mingw-gcc-core. But to build mingw-runtime and mingw-w32api you
  need... mingw-gcc-core."

Can this type of circular dep be packaged in Fedora (and how?)
