According to NightStrike on 2/2/2008 9:17 AM:

Which configure tests are failing?  The problem is that it's extremely
difficult to pick which subset of configure tests are relevant to a
particular binary, since the same workarounds are shared among so many
binaries.  But without details, we can't help investigate workarounds.
Meanwhile, you can prime the cache before running configure by setting
appropriate variables, or even post-edit the resulting config.h to better
match the true characteristics of your platform.

Mingw has notoriously been a difficult porting platform, thanks to its
lack of standards compliance.  Even worse is the fact that 64-bit support
for mingw is so new.  I wish you luck in your efforts.
