gcc-3 is only used for cygwin, and you're claiming to use mingw, that
suggests that your setup is misconfigured.

With best regards, Stas.

I did first try to compile with cygwin, had trouble, and then installed mingw64.

I thought that mingw64 and cygwin can live side by side.  I found a few links
on the web that discuss how to do it.
