[Openmcl-devel] Building CCL on Windows

P.S. Apparently, I’d forgotten that I had installed MinGW long ago (both 32 and 64 bit versions). At first I get all excited, but I quickly discover it doesn’t have ‘make’. So the basic problem seems to be: in order to build the win64 version of CCL, you have to configure a build environment in some unspecified way. I hope I’m wrong.

I’ve tried already, and it seems to rely on a very specific (but unspecified) GNU environment simulator MinGW to allow CCL to use GNU Make. I already have Cygwin64 installed on my PC, and the CCL build fails in that environment. (And the pessimist that I am, I’m afraid if I install MinGW on my PC, it will break Cygwin.)
