Ok, thanks for that. I assumed that it was a general problem. Knowing 
that it has to be my configuration, I
- removed the MKS Toolkit from path
- removed my GCC 4.2 (branch) from path
- reinstalled msys with gcc 3.4
and it worked. I assume that GCC 4.2 is to blame, but it might also be 
that some programs from the MKS Toolkit were used :-)
