It could be broken - haven't built it in a while.  I notice that the
license filename below is "COPYING", rather than "COPYING.txt".  I
don't remember exactly, but this may have been something I started to
"fix" but left off in midstream.  We really should use names without
extensions as our default (e.g. "README", "COPYING", "INSTALL") and
only rename them to *.txt during the Windows build itself.  Most
likely, I changed the name of the license file from "COPYING.txt" to
"COPYING" and updated tuxtype.nsi.in accordingly, but perhaps the
crossbuild still expects the file to be called "COPYING.txt" and so
the file doesn't get copied into the temporary mingw32 directory.

I'll look at it more when I get a chance.
