Comment(by David Bussenschutt (aka buzz)  <davidbuzz at gmail.com>):

 * latest version (8) uploaded.
 * added perl2dos and perl2unix functions to convert path handling
 * reworked all variables to use correct $dosxxx,$unixxxx or $xxx variables
 according to the location the execution will occur in  - ie [exec],
 [shell] or perl, respectively.
 * tar/bz2/zip extraction fixed as per Harold's suggestion ( although I
 refactored to take advantage of perl2dos and perl2unix ). creates a
 sh2.exe for this purpose too.
 * now assumes that msys mounts for / and /ming are correct, and simplifies
 * removed all incorrect "double slashing" from msys commands ie
 /blah//blah or //bin/tar.exe which are not always correctly handled as
 equivalent to a single slash, especially at the start of a path.
 * no longer downloads/requires entire dx9 sdk from MS, instead uses a
 mythtv developer supplied zipfile (supplied by buzz). saves a 438MB
 download, now only downloads 92K.

 CAUTION: script as NOT be run right through from the beginning at this
 time, alpha code still.
