Why that question? We simply need to provide clear instructions on what packages to install on popular Linux distros to get these things to compile. Dhiru? That said, last time I checked Cygwin-built programs were mostly non-working on Wine. Some trivial things worked, but most did not. I do find it weird that Cygwin is a lot more Wine-unfriendly than many proprietary libraries are. Apparently, developers of both Cygwin and Wine found little reason to work on making these two compatible, although I hope this will be changing. It'd be convenient for me to be able to build John/Cygwin releases (intended for Windows) on Wine. Alexander
