The MinGW compiler does not work for gdc though (because that is what I 
had used and it didn't relocate, even if their gcc/g++ does just fine?),
so I think I will make a test with using --prefix=c:/mingw instead of 
the current --prefix=/mingw (that was taken from the default

Thanks for the idea, and let us know if you find their special trick :-)
