I'm going to get picky here. Using Cygwin gcc with the -mno-cygwin switch is
not MinGW. There is a different gcc which Mumit distributes that is native to
Win32 and thus is the MinGW GCC toolset. You can get this from the pointers at
Using the -mno-cygwin switch is sort of a cross compile. You have a separate
set of headers, a separate set of libraries and a special switch which is
controlled via the specs file.
Mumit has on his site a "howto" for using the -mno-cygwin switch successfully.
This information is in the volumes of archives.
