Is this the one to use? I can copy it and edit it to suit my paths as long as I can find where all the paths are located. Are the paths *only* found in the makefile or do they also go into the WXS files? Finally, after editing the paths to suit, how do I *use* the makefile? Am I supposed to do something from cygwin here? Sorry to be a pest, but I really would like to be able to build the stuff properly....
