I was refering to patches by Mumit Khan that went into CLN 1.0.1, see
CLN's NEWS file enty for that release.  I do not know about other aspects
of the port and I am pretty sure the other developers don't know either
since none of them uses Windows.

But if you know what you are doing and think it is good work you are
welcome to follow the last two lines of GiNaC's README.  ;-)

(But please do check out CLN 1.1 from CVS and GiNaC from there and work
with these sources since a release is around the corner -- there are no
show-stoppers any more right now.)
