+Default build configuration tries to build and test NTLogEventAppender,
which
+is partially based on Windows32 native code.
+
+To build Log4j on Windows32 you need to either
+
+1a) Install MinGW [someone please provide more details]
+
+Or
+
+1b) Copy NTEventLogAppender.dll from binary Log4j distribution to your

The appropriate place for this information would be in the INSTALL file which is an established location for 
build and installation details.
Comment 2 Curt Arnold 2007-10-22 17:14:20 UTC
Elaborated on Maven and MinGW preparation in INSTALL file in rev 587311.
