I can never remember if /usr/local is searched by the compiler and/or
loader.  You can use compiler options (on your application) to look
anywhere desired.

If it's just a shared library which is not found you might need to
re-run ldconfig (though the libtool install is supposed to do that

With the mingw tools it should be possible to run configure in the
normal way.

It might be possible to do a mingw build using the cygwin tools too,
something like the following (untested),

        ./configure CC="gcc -mno-cygwin" --host=i386-pc-mingw32

Replace i386 with your actual processor.
