The same configuration works fine for me on Windows - all tests pass.

I can only think that there's some problem with the makefile that got
generated, or with the make program that you're running.

Make sure that your MinGW/bin doesn't contain a file called 'make.exe' (if
it does, then rename it). You want to use the 'make.exe' that is in the
MSYS/bin, so check that you are in fact using that particular 'make.exe'.

Also check the version of your MSYS. The self-installing executable file
that I downloaded was 'MSYS-1.0.10.exe' and if I right click on my
MSYS/bin/msys-1.0.dll, then select "Properties" followed by "Version" it
reports itself as 1000.10.0.0. (If you have the same version, then that's
clearly not the problem, either.)
