Thanks, that worked great. Now, is there a special way to install pcre and curl (with ssl support)  into this? Or can I just copy those files from my cygwin directory?

Nothing, (except, perhaps, neglecting to check the list archives for
the past day or two).

There is a regression in the latest mingw-get.exe; I'll post a fix as
quickly as I can.  In the meantime:

 mingw-get update
 mingw-get install --reinstall --recursive gcc

maybe followed by:

 mingw-get install --reinstall --recursive libgmp-dll

should get you up and running.
