E.8.2.2 Building Aspell using MinGW

There are several different ways to build Aspell using MinGW. The easiest way is to use a Cygwin compiler but instruct it to build a native binary rather than a Cygwin one. To do this configure with:

./configure CFLAGS='-O2 -mno-cygwin' CXXFLAGS='-O2 -mno-cygswin'

You may also want to add the option ‘--enable-win32-relocatable’ to use more windows friendly directories. See Win32-Directories. In this case configure with:

./configure CFLAGS='-O2 -mno-cygwin' CXXFLAGS='-O2 -mno-cygswin' --enable-win32-relocatable

It should also be possible to build Aspell using the MSYS environment. But this has not been very well tested. If building with MSYS do not add ‘CFLAGS …’ to configure.
