[LLVMdev] Getting started using MinGW binary release?

Finally, I got my hands on Windows machine again today.

I extracted llvm-2.1-x86-mingw32.tar.bz2  and
to C:\llvm  (It's a bare Windows Vista installation without MinGW)

Added C:\llvm\bin;C:\llvm\libexec\gcc\i686-pc-mingw32\4.0.1 to PATH
(C:\llvm\libexec\gcc\i686-pc-mingw32\4.0.1 was added for cc1.exe)

Downloaded ftp://sourceware.org/pub/pthreads-win32/prebuilt-dll-1-9-0-release/lib/pthreadGC1.dll
to C:\llvm\bin\pthreadGC.dll

    > llvm-gcc hello.c -IC:\llvm\include
    llvm-gcc: installation problem, cannot exec `as': No such file or directory

So, I renamed C:\llvm\bin\llvm-as.exe as C:\llvm\bin\as.exe
    > llvm-gcc hello.c -IC:\llvm\include
    as: ./cc0Qaaaa.s:3,0: ./cc0Qaaaa.s:3: error: syntax error,
unexpected $undefined
    , expecting GLOBAL or CONSTANT while reading token: '.'

Am I supposed to install MinGW (maybe MSYS) and extract prebuilt
packages ( llvm-2.1-x86-mingw32.tar.bz2  and
llvm-gcc4.0-2.1-x86-mingw32.tar.bz2) to C:\MinGW ??

I'll try to install MinGW tomorrow.
