Maybe I could put that shortcut on my desktop instead of the one setup
wants to put there :D

Actually, I decided to have a little look at the code, but fell at the
first hurdle whilst following the instructions in the README, because
./configure complains that -mno-cygwin is not supported (true enough):

configure:3021: checking whether the C++ compiler works
configure:3043: g++ -mno-cygwin  -I /usr/include/ncurses  conftest.cpp  >&5
g++: The -mno-cygwin flag has been removed; use a mingw-targeted cross-compiler\

configure:3047: $? = 1
configure:3085: result: no
configure: failed program was:

WTH? Am I supposed to be using some other compiler, such as gcc-3?

(Note: removing the -mno-cygwin option seems to make configure work, but
the knock on effect is probably not desirable.)
