No problems building any of the earlier releases other than getting
working LDAP/SASL/BerkDB libs built under MinGW/MSys on Win2000. (A LOT of
work for one binary 8-{)). )

Thank you for the great work.  I'm using Carlo Bianco's technique
for building GnuPG on Win32 using MinGW & MSys. Everything builds except
gpgkeys_ldap, but I guess I'll have to get around to tickling OpenLDAP
into building. The only changes I had to make was to add libwsock32.a to
the linking in a few places -- adding $(NETLIBS) to a few _LDADDs.

    gpg_LDADD =  mkdtemp$U.o $(LDADD)   $(NETLIBS)
    gpgv_LDADD = $(LDADD) $(NETLIBS)

    mpicalc_LDADD = $(needed_libs)  $(NETLIBS)
    bftest_LDADD = $(needed_libs)   $(NETLIBS)

gpg_LDADD was really a stylistic change from -lwsock32 to $(NETLIBS).

gpg works fine in a Windows CMD window, but this is the first version I've
built that doesn't run under MinGW32's /bin/sh. This showed up in "make
check". Running gpg results in the error:
    The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000022).
