After some trouble (most having to do with not replacing qmake.exe) I've
managed to get it completely compiled with your patch. I'm attempting to do
an install now. Did you manage to successfully do a "mingw32-make install"
or did you simply copy the files in place by hand?

Okay - So as for my patch, I just did a build with just mingw and msys and
ran into link errors with QT. I redid QT from CVS, and redid myth, and did
a successful build. I realized that there is one more dependency missing,
zlib, and added that to my site.
First of all launching is obviously quicker under mingw for what works
about it. It doesn't seem to launch at all from a command line,
unless launching from msys, and even then it doesn't seem to like windows
filenames. This is finally at the point where it will compile all the way
with that patch I posted, and it is just working out symantecs of a non
posix file structure where it is hard coded in myth's code. If that patch
could get applied to CVS by someone, then some other people can finally join
in on this since it is basically down to a science.
For those who don't want to follow the whole thread:

Dep's Needed to build Myth under MinGW
5) QT 3.3 w/ mysql support
6) P-Threads Win32
7) LameMp3 built w/ mingw
8) DirectX includes
All dep's needed to build are at my site.
1) The directX headers have to be mounted under msys under
2) When launching one of the executables, you will need dll's from
freetype,zlib,qt-mt333, mysql, pthreadsGCE, and myth all in the same
directory. The mysql dll is in the QT binary I provided. (If you want to
be crazy, build QT yourself, everything i changed and needed is there)
