Hi there,

And thanks again!

I understand what you're writing and after looking puzzled in my own nightly 
build script I wrote when we used sdl1.2 I found this snipped:

if [ -f src/.libs/maxr.exe ]; then
        i686-pc-mingw32-strip src/.libs/maxr.exe
        mv src/.libs/maxr.exe ./data/

I have however no idea why this is like it is, since the linux binary is always 
put in ./src/. Just curious now :) In fact I did find the real exe exactly 
where you mentioned it.

I've no idea how cross compiling really works and I've next to no knowhow about 
Windows and compiling so I really really love what MXE is doing here for me :-)

I've seen that you're maintaining a list of software that uses MXE. You may add 
the "Mechanized Assault and eXploration Reloaded" project at maxr.org if 
nightly builds qualify for the list ;-) We're using MXE now since Mai 2012 so 
our debug players can always download latest SVN for breaking.

Thank you a lot!
