I have no problem using the output from gas ("as" under Cygwin)
in the Microsoft linker.  This is how I build GMP from unmodified
sources using the standard configure system.  (I wrote wrapper
scripts around the MSVC compiler and linker to make them "look"
more like Unix-style compilers.  Modulo a major bug in libtool,
everything works perfectly.  I should probably release this as
it would save people's porting time, but it's kind of clumsy
due to the libtool bug workarounds.)

What problems are you having, and what versions of as and link
are you using?
