What needs to be done to build the dailies as you're doing now? The daily builds are very different from the Pari.exe installer. They are done on a linux system using a cross-compiler mingw and wine.

For readline it is a matter of finding how to install it on mingw in my setup. > On a not-unrelated note, is there a list of the parts of Pari that > have not yet been ported to Windows?
