Edit C:\Qt\4.2.0\bin\qtvars.bat and add the following line (the second is only
needed if you like vim in your shell):

set PATH=%PATH%;C:\msys\local\bin

Currently you need to put it into that location in case you plan to create
the NSIS installer because so far it contains hardcoded paths for this location.

QGIS:
-------------
Check out to c:\dev\cpp\qgis
Currently you need to put it into that location I think - if you try to build
somewhere else you *may* run into problems - particularly with the NSIS installer
as I havent checked all paths are relative yet.
Next you need to shift some files around. For convenience we've made an archive
that handles all the changes for you. Download it and unpack to qgis source directory:

Next you need to shift some files around. Note I expect this requirement to go away
once the windows build process is refined a bit.

List of what has been changed / added by this archive to enable compilation:

Core:
-------------
- moved qgsspatialrefsys* and qgscoordinatetransform* into core dir from gui
- moved qgscsexception.h, qgsspatialrefsys* and qgscoordinatetransform* into core dir from gui
- moved qgspluginregistry.* from core to gui
- qgsspatialrefsys.cpp - commented out SRS validation using projection selector
- qgsspatialrefsys.cpp - commented out lines using qgsproject as it depends on gui stuff
- qgsdistancearea.cpp - commented out lines using qgsproject as it depends on
gui stuff and moved to core
- qgscsexception.h into core from gui (only tested on mac)

I have created a small archive which includes the above changes, which I will make available.

- lexer and parser generated by genlexyacc.bat
- added custom qgsconfig.h and qgssvnversion.h


Building:
-------------
---------

Now open the qt command shell
Now open the qt command shell (or start "cmd" and run c:\Qt\4.2.0\qtvars.bat)

cd c:\dev\cpp\qgis
qmake
make

This will compile both debug and release version. To make just a one of them
use "make debug" or "make release" respectively.

Note: debug version uses debug version of Qt library thus if linking fails
on not founding library QtSvgd4 (or similar), you need to install them.

Running: (optional)
--------

After successfull make you can run QGIS directly from the directory
where it has been built: qgis-debug and/or qgis-release in qgis root dir.
You only need to add data files - we have provided an archive for convenience
which you can just unpack there and run QGIS:

Create the installation package:
---------------------------------
http://qgis.org/uploadfiles/msys/qgis_data.zip

Then just run qgis.exe

GDB: (optional)
----

If you plan to do some debugging, download and install gdb-6.3.2.exe from

http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/mingw/gdb-6.3-2.exe?download

and install to c:\msys\mingw


Create the installation package: (optional)
--------------------------------

Downlad and install NSIS from (http://nsis.sourceforge.net/Main_Page)

Download both the QGIS debug and release installer packages from
