Yes, I agree, that was pretty painless. Thanks for the help. My only
concern is that the build used a very old compiler which MS is doing
its best to remove all traces of and (unavoidably, it seems) some
third-party things which could disappear any time, but for now it
certainly seems to work.

I think your instructions (with the necessary minor corrections)
should go into the source somewhere. Is there a "README" type document
about WinCE anywhere (I don't see one at a quick look)? If not then
either add a top-level READM.wince, or else add a WinCE section into
README.win32. I don't mind doing this in the near future in you don't
have time.

Please could you post instructions (to this ticket) on how to build
with Smart Devices? I'm interested in trying that too, as a more up to
date build option.
