Have you tried using Cygwin with MinGW?
Currently cygwin's gcc supports a -mno-cygwin flag that will make it use
mingw headers and enable it to create windows native executables.
And while it seems that support for this "mingw mode" is to be terminated,
for now it's working. ;)
In alternative, you can just setup your PATH so that MinGW's binaries are
used instead of cygwin's ones. (I used this method to build erl_interface
with MinGW and it didn't complain [much]).

Does that means we'll get new versions of eper tools (
http://code.google.com/p/eper/) using wxerlang? ;) ;)
A while ago I tried to install eper but I stopped in the same place as Steve
(didn't thought of using cygwin at that time) and just extracted redbug.
By the way, thanks for building this wonderful little tool. :)
