MSVC = Microsoft Visual C?
Does this mean it's not been built using MinGW?
I've managed to build the simulator using MinGW; if you meant that this has
not been done, I'd be happy to write up instructions for doing it.
Otherwise, I misunderstood you, and should have asked where to find those
Speaking of which, any guides to using the simulator?

No one ever made it work. We still await patches that fix this problem!

AFAIK, it isn't possible without hands-on fiddling. The only way to build
sim on Windows is currently the MSVC way.

The reason for the mingw's existance in that makefile is that we have a
mingw cross-compiler running on Linux for the compile-status table on the
site. Feel free to modify whatever's necessary to make a simulator build on
