Hello, Jon

> What threw me was the projects inclusion of 2 of the 3 other pieces that make up a typical manual install of mingw or http://www.tdragon.net/recentgcc/  I saw the runtime and w32api stuff in my very quick scan of the llvm-gcc dir and didn't bother to confirm binutils :(
Well, binutils are quite different:
1. It's GPL-licensed, thus we need to provide sources as well, which
is bit inconvenient
2. You need to have headers & libs in predefined dirs to let gcc /
llvm-gcc pick them w/o any additional options, this is not case of
binutils - you just need stuff in path

Just grab the GettingStarted.html page, seems to be pretty convenient place.
