I've been working on getting Xapian to build under MinGW and have been
successful getting the current Xapian HEAD compiled with MinGW 3.1.0
("make check" passes all tests).  My only difficulty was in getting the
Python bindings built.  It (and maybe other bindings, but I didn't try
them) needs to link to the query parser library, but that library isn't
getting built as a DLL by the standard make process.  Since i686 GCC
won't link to a library this way, it bails out.  I was able to tweak
the makefile for the query parser library to link with -no-undefined
and get a libxapianqueryparser-3.dll generated.  Is this something that
could be done in the standard makefile?
