Although this is different from what the original discussion started
out as, it's still a legitimate need. I'd suggest setting up (on
Crosswire if feasible) a cross-build environment and build SWORD and
the utilities weekly. It's fairly simple to build SWORD and its
dependencies with MinGW cross-compiling, and this way it could get
done automatically. I'd be willing to at least provide advice on how
to do this. (I don't have any experience with using MinGW on anything
except Ubuntu, so I couldn't advice which packages were needed, but
that should be relatively simple). I have scripts to build clucene,
sword, icu (4.0.1), and curl.
