That's great! Feel free to propose any scripts for new libraries etc.
to us, so that others can profit from your efforts.

In case you're starting an internal shared-library fork of our
static-library mingw-cross-env, that would be interesting, too.

Note that it is usually better to produce variables like CPPFLAGS
as arguments rather than env vars to ./configure, i.e.:

    ./configure --prefix=$PREFIX --host=$TARGET CPPFLAGS='-D_OPEN_BINARY'

Anyway, thanks for your report! I just fixed that.

Would you mind downloading the current development version and
checking whether the issue is solved by now?
