Re: Why the rash of people bypassing setup.exe to install?

It's even worse that you think. Last week's LWN contained a newssnippet
about "Xmingwin" -- a linux-build, mingw-target cross compiler leveraged
off of Earnie's mingw. Which, of course, has a heritage from cygwin.
FWIW, I've recently sent email to Mumit Khan for similar reasons. His
"ancient" gnu-win32 site still shows up in google and some of the
outdated techniques espoused there demonstrably cause confusion.
If you read the article that lwn refers to,
you find that ITS "resources" section contains a ton of links to a lot
of old, unmaintained, and otherwise inaccurate mingw and cygwin sites --
including two separate links to Mumit's pages.
And this is a NEW, January 2003 article in IBM's developerWorks.
