Setup.exe build woes

What happened to setup.exe?

The last time I built it is a year ago or so, but now I can't build it
anymore without manual intervention.  I used the script,
followed by `make'.  I have all mingw packages from the distro
installed, but that doesn't help.

See what happens when trying to link setup.exe:

  g++-3 -mno-cygwin -Werror -Wall -Wno-uninitialized -Wpointer-arith \
                    -Wcomments -Wcast-align -Wwrite-strings \
	-g -O2 \
	-mwindows -static -o setup.exe \
	AntiVirus.o archive.o [...] win32.o window.o \
	csu_util/MD5Sum.o csu_util/rfc1738.o csu_util/version_compare.o \
	libmd5-rfc/md5.o  \
	libgetopt++/.libs/libgetopt++.a -lgcrypt /usr/lib/libgpg-error.a \
	-L/usr/lib /usr/lib/libintl.a /usr/lib/libiconv.a -lshlwapi \
	-lcomctl32 -lole32 -lwsock32 -lnetapi32 -luuid /usr/lib/liblzma.a \
	-lbz2 -lz -lmingw32

Why on earth does the configury pull in files from /usr/lib instead of
from /usr/lib/mingw?
