I've never tried to build Bakefile that way, nor have I seen reports on
the Bakefile mailing list of people doing it successfully, but it
wouldn't surprise me to learn that this doesn't work correctly.

I'm using a recent svn version from after the 0.2.2 release, and I can
generate MinGW Makefiles with Bakefile. Lacking evidence to the
contrary, my guess is that the rpmbuild process didn't pick up all the
I say, build and install Bakefile straight from the sources. Or at
least, use the spec file included with Bakefile instead of relying on
rpmbuild to figure out the rules implicitly.
