On this page I am making available my own builds of several common utilities,
as well as some of my own making. I am also making available the diffs from the
original sources. All these are in the 'tar.gz' format, which
For each source package, I list pointers to:

First, get the excellent free compiler gcc-2.95/mingw32 . This is Mumit Khan's Win32 port of the GNU 'gcc' compiler, and it generates binaries which are small and fast, requiring only the DLLs that come with Win32.
Then you need to follow the instructions given in the package for how to set your environment (it's extremely easy).
My time is valuable. If you can't be bothered to download the sources from the places I point to and apply my patches to them, I will send you a 3.5" floppy (as many as needed) with the tar'ed gzip'ed code if you:
