Thanks for the link. I guess this is not a big issue for using msys.
It looks that (http://sourceforge.net/projects/mingwbundle/) is not officially supported here.

Let me get back to my original  question and see if you have any suggestions. I follow the Mingw Howto
to have the package installed, but the compilation cannot get through.  Did I miss something or 
maybe I need to try a different machine?
