This is a cygwin build, not mingw.  Make sure you've got the right
tools if you want mingw.

(In the next release we'll be automatically adding -mno-cygwin to the
flags for --host=i586-pc-mingw32 or whatever, to hopefully allow a
cygwin gcc to be used, but for now you have to do that yourself.)

PS. Bug reports belong on bug-gmp.
