When installing opencv 2.4.8 for Windows, I discovered that the folder build\x86\mingw is missing. It is present in OpenCV 2.4.2. Is this a bug? I am a PHP programmer and new to opencv and mingw.

there were problems with the mingw binaries, like false virus-scanner alerts, also too many libstdc(++) versions, so they don't pack that in anymore.

atm, you'll have to build them from src (cmake)

Is it possible to have the binaries for mingw included in opencv distributable as done for previous versons? uncompressed the mingw is only 45Meg (versus 350Meg for vc11). I realize that there are so many possibilities with mingw, but using the same settings as done for opencv2.4.5 would be great....
