For years, I have been using the Unix Tools for Windows and it's been a great package. It's lightweight, simple and includes just about anything one could need. Been using it for years.
Seems it's a dead project though. Tools are over 10 years out of date and we're running into versioning problems ('make', for example, is v3.80 in the update pkg from the website but our build system needs 3.81).
Looking for a replacement suite. I know about Cygwin … hate it! Bloated, heavy, overkill, overgrown, installs waaaaaaaay too much and is just not to my liking. Did I mention it's bloated and overkill? I don't want 100+ MBs installed for just a few tools. I don't want a full X environment for a 'find' tool. Make it go away!
Is there another suite, like UTfW, that offers some current, natively compiled tools I can drop into a folder, add to the path and carry on?
