Hi Yann,

Sorry about sending this twice, but the list rejected the last one 
because I accidentally left my email signature on.

Do you know the minimum versions of the tools required or are the
versions in the TODO correct? Should I be building the minimum versions,
or is it ok just to build the latest ones?

No problem! It seems fairly simple to add the other 3 tools into this
patch as well, or would you rather they were all separate patches?

When I submit further versions of this patch should I also include the
"Change overide bin dir" patch (is it even possible to exclude it with
mercurial)? I don't like spamming the list with duplicate patches, but
this patch doesn't work without the "Change overide bin dir" patch.
