Subject: RE: Contributing significant changes to the jumbo patch 	(mostly performance improvements)

Patch john-

This is a patch to get MinGW working with john.  It works proply
with installed.  There were other mingw patches
but since each of them, were specific for a specific john
release, I did not use one of them, and bump the -REVISION

Note, it would be nice to have the MinGW patches merged into
the 'base' jumbo patch at some time.  MinGW is head and 
shoulders better than Cygwin, which has been merged into 
the main tree.

Patch john-

This patch is a MinGW patch, AND a Micro$oft VC patch.  NOTE to 
Use in VC, you will still have to have MinGW/MSYS installed.  Mingw
is used to build the proper arch.c file (and others?) and it 
builds the asm files (x86.S, etc), into .o files.  Then VC can
simply link in these .o files, even though it can not parse the
AT/T asm syntax.

NOTE to get VC 'running', I will post some project files, if there
actually is any interest.
