Well, think about what you're saying... GCC autotools have a bunch of checks for mingw that make the build use windows specific sources. There's bound to be some Unix specific and windows specific source files in QuickFix. If the autotools wasn't written with that in mind, you're screwed. Autotools isn't a one stop ticket to a full cross-platform build without some modification. Take off your pink glasses, autotools isn't the holy grail. He might well run into the wrong source files (and thus Unix stuff like sockets and pthreads) being used in the autotools build.
