I am very happy to confirm that with Boxi R642 and BoxBackup R2495 
building and running Boxi works fine (except for some bugs that I will 
report separately).

Thank you very much Chris for the great job!

When using the Cygwin-provided CPPunit (as opposed to manually compiling 
from source and installing into /usr/local), once has to link 
/usr/include/cppunit/ to /usr/include/mingw/cppunit, otherwise the 
headers are not found:

main.cc:42:47: cppunit/BriefTestProgressListener.h: No such file or 

Perhaps we could simply include /usr/include in the standard includes?

One other minor thing is that one has to remember to run 
./make-image-headers.pl after ./configure-mingw.sh, perhaps that could 
be integrated into the Makefile?

Thank you again, Achim
