This is what I've been doing ;)
But it gets annoying having to rebuild the rxvt source - especially 
when for some reason it doesnt build OOT(cygwin-patched)B - or patch 
the binary myself whenever there's a new release, especially when its a 
patch that most users would enjoy (although it may bloat the binary by 
an extra 1k - so use upx :P).

Just a convenience thing really ;)
