Yes, the prefix system sounded like a good idea at the time, but turns
out to be a bit crazy in practice. Even with the foo=bar notation,
it's still difficult to deal with.
What works for me with the current version of nsiswrapper is to
install the program first, ie. make sure it is in
/usr/i686-pc-mingw32/sys-root/mingw/bin. Then the paths and prefixes
should work out correctly.
Please use 'diff -u' (unified diff) format when sending patches.
