I have been compiling 2.0 and 2.2 under MingW but without 
Under 2.2, I get a compiling error of the TXP plugin. Compiler is not 
able to find includes because:
- 1- local includes are written as #include <> and not #include ""
-2- compiler does not like -I..../src/osgPlugins/txp/. => fixed removing 
the trailing /. within generated makefiles :-(

Otherwise, it works really fine for me.
