Static libraries compiled with Visual C++ are
incompatible with MingW (and vice-versa).

    1. C++ libraries (static or dynamic) are not binary compatible
    across compilers. This is unlikely to ever change.

    2. C libraries are mostly compatible, and it is my
    understanding that this is improving due to recent patches
    like returning structures of up to 8 bytes in registers.

    If nobody knows of any specific situations where C libraries are
    incompatible, I propose that this bug be closed.
