Follow up to "Build on MSys/Mingw32 failed"

Even  though building didn't seem to max out my memory usage, I tried
shutting everything unnecessary down and making again.

The make seemed to succeed but make-check failed all test:

make[4]: Entering directory `/c/assembler/gmp-4.2.2/tests'
FAIL: t-bswap.exe
FAIL: t-constants.exe
FAIL: t-count_zeros.exe
FAIL: t-gmpmax.exe
FAIL: t-hightomask.exe
FAIL: t-modlinv.exe
FAIL: t-popc.exe
FAIL: t-parity.exe
FAIL: t-sub.exe
9 of 9 tests failed

I have a suspicion that the tests can't find the DLL.  I can't find the
DLL.  Maybe I did something something wrong with that "--prefix"  option
that I don't understand.  I created a directory "c:/assember/gmpinstall" and
my configure line was "./configure --build=i368-pc-mingw32 --enable-fat
-prefix=c:/assembler/gmpinstall --disable-static --enable-shared"

Anyway that directory is empty and a search of the entire disk didn't turn
up a gmp.dll

Odd that that the make seemed to succeed.
