Can we have a week to bang on it after an installer is complete?

First observations:

1. A few things I've tried to compile (lclint, and a few others) require
bison v1.28 in order to function/compile properly. (v1.25 is what's
currently included).

2. There's also a newer version of make (3.78.2, as opposed to the 3.77
included currently) that has several nifty bugfixes.

3. I didn't see ncurses in there upon a cursory glance, but including v5.0
would be nice. (I wanna be able to compile nethack with cygwin out of the
box ;>)

Once there is an installer, I will have lots more to comment upon :)

it's only fair to tell you
I'm absolutely cuckoo
