I don't really understand this distinction. Why are, say, gstreamer and
qt considered to be build tools, but not X11?

I agree. It makes no sense except for the vast amount of legacy code
that I have.

I'm afraid you totally misunderstood what I was trying to say.

I'm afraid you're right. Can you point me to somewhere that might clarify things for me? If I'm going to try to use MinGW I'd like to grok it better.

You could also provide a corresponding mingw-cross-env package
"src/libx11.mk" if you like, so that others will benefit from
your efforts. ...

I may try this. Would such a package be accepted as part of mingw-cross-env?

Thanks for your help.
