This needs to be there in case somebody has an older winsup directory.
I guess this needs to be added there.  If this works, would you
check it into sourceware?

Also, can we simplify the DLL creation now using the newer linker?

I don't see a syntax error.  It seems to be legal to have:

	for f ; in stuff; do

I don't know why you're seeing an error.  Is the above command an error
on your system?

Why is this?  My has these lines:

MINGW_INCLUDES:=-I$(mingw_source)/include -I$(cygwin_source)/include -I$(w32api_include)


strace is built using this command:
        $(CC) $(MINGW_CXXFLAGS) -o $@ ${wordlist 1,2,$^} -B$(mingw_build)/ $(MINGW_LDFLAGS)

So, unless MINGW_INCLUDES is being overridden, I don't see why the w32api/include directory
is being excluded.
