Re: Self-hosting?

For emacs 21.3.5 windows binary see http://nqmacs.sourceforge.net/, it's great!
Emacs doesn't include a c compiler, it requires an external one.  If you want one for windows check out http://www.mingw.org.  Until a c compiler is included with emacs, an external one will be required to compile the c core. At least, as far as I understand.

I forgot to mention, my primary motivation here was to get a 21.x
emacs for my windows computer. The ftp.gnu.org resource still has the
RSN message for all the windows binaries since 20.7.
