    Hello Phil 

    I first run the script given on my web page called: withmingw 

    jpc at clio: source withmingw 
    then, just to be sure, you check that the compiler is now the correct one: 

jpc at clio: gcc -v
Using built-in specs.
Target: i686-pc-mingw32 <---------------
Thread model: win32
gcc version 4.4.3 (GCC)     

    then in webkit I use: 

    ./configure --host=i686-pc-mingw32 --with-font-backend=pango --enable-video=no --with-target=win32 

    you need to have pkg-config on your host since I haven't installed the 
    mingw32 one. I just change the pkg-config search path in the withmingw script.

    And, of course, I then have some compilations pbs in various files (<=10)
    that were  already discusses in the mailing list.
