Yes, I think this would be good!
Additionally, when configure script is run, it could give a warning message
that tools
could be out of sync when not referenced and build from ../tools dir.
So it`s up to the user, to decide - and it`s gonna be my job to supply
updated tools
in binary form for the Win32 SDK. I still don`t know exactly, how much gcc
compiler libs & stuff will "blow up" the SDK, but I think it is
Maybe native win32 compiler parts will make it`s way into win32 SDK one day
- but
the changes in the configure/Makefiles wouldn`t hurt then....
