Thank you for your responce. I used gmp-4.3.1. Do you use the same gmp 
As far as I am concerned, I make no difference between MSYS and cygwin 
as long as I am using MinGW compiler and not gcc that comes with cygwin.
I suspect a problem with the gmp. I forgot to say that the static build 
works fine.

Best regards,
