I started the following thread a month and a half ago, and got no useful 
replies:

The situation is very simple: I do not use all platforms.  I only 
actively support platforms I personally use, or for which there is 
community support.  Any other platform is not supported, and special 
code to support it is likely to be removed at my earliest convenience. 
Dead or useless code causes maintenance hassles, so this is simply an 
act of self-preservation.  If you have the ability to turn useless code 
into useful code, step up and provide a patch.  Then the code stays.

I looked back through all of your old posts, and the only thing I can 
see is the suggestion to move all code from row.cpp into row.h.  I 
objected to that, and that was the end of it, I thought.  Is this what 
you're referring to?

I don't recall reading this before now.  This is the sort of thing you 
need to post to the list if you want me to consider MinGW a supported 
platform.  Also, I want to know how exactly you got MySQL to build. 
 From my experience with the Cygwin port, I know it is not trivial.

Then you need to continue to support the MySQL++ project, by helping out 
when I post messages like the one I linked to above.  I can't do it alone.

I was wrong to suggest using this in the first place, in our original 
email exchanges.  I didn't know enough about MinGW at the time.  The 
proper solution is to get the makemake files working.
