We should add a link from Win32CompileCygwin to this page. --David206 16:27, 20 May 2008 (CEST)

ranlib command added

I added this because in the contrib-20090121-win32-bin-gcc-3.4.5-only.tar.bz2 tarball one library (liblua.a) needed this ranlib. In anycase it doesn't hurt to do it! -- Gozer 10:47, 26 January 2009 (CET)

Windows bz2 contrib

Note related to section "Installing the Win32 "contrib" package in Cygwin"

To uncompress a bz2 archive, isn't 'j' option needed by tar? Like this:

tar xjf contrib-20080702-win32-bin-gcc-4.2.1-sjlj-runtime-3.13-only.tar.bz2 -C /
