That header is on the native system, not part of mingw-cross-env - so
the patch isn't necessary.

The metis Makefile has to be modified to use the cross build tools.
However, it's probably cleaner to build metis alongside suitesparse
since suitesparse looks for it in a non-standard location.

Suitesparse needs similar modifications, however it has linking errors
using the BLAS from GSL. CHOLMOD seems to build ok, however I doubt
it's actually working since it doesn't link with any of it's
dependencies and seems to be missing some steps.

I think that depends on getting a working BLAS/LAPACK. I started
having a look at Atlas, but it seems to have a very arcane

See if you can use the attached as a starting point, I'm sure they
would be welcome additions once they are working.
