Hi Dick,

I email a few people off-list to ask if they could test it out for me,
but then realised that KiCad needs patching for it to work from start
to finish.

The easiest way to get the script is via bazaar:

bzr branch lp:~brian-sidebotham/+junk/kicad-winbuilder

I will update it tonight, as currently it does not produce a message
to say that configuring KiCad before building fails. Once the gcc_lib
patch is provided the script should work smoothly though.

Best Regards,
