Yes, and no. I have no trouble compiling (and using) hatari on my
Ubuntu machine. But if I set up some kind
of a build system, I want everybody, not only Ubuntu and Debian users
to be able to use the binary.
On my Mac I use something called Homebrew which handles sdl and cmake.
(I don't use the Hatari.App) - but again, if other users wants to use
"my" binary, they also need to have the same setup as me.
Staticy linking would take care of that.

Yeah, I do that myself as well. But I use mingw-w64 (which also can
create 32bit binaries and libraries) to achive the same thing.

I don't want to do any hacks that is not supported.
I'll se what I can do during this week.
