Sorry about that. Seems I planned the 0.169 release somewhat
inconvenient for you. But I don't think we would have many more patches
in if we had waited a week.

It looks like you have a nice setup already. But if it would be helpful
to have a user branch on sourceware.org then please follow the steps in
CONTRIBUTING on how to become a committer. Then even if we don't
integrate all your patches in master it will look more like an "official
fork" to support a Windows build.
