In mingw terms, .lib is meant for dynamic linking, not static linking.
the .a file is meant for static linking.

And Solaris does not know what __inline means... Ok, I have put
compile-time #defines.

Ah, damn, configure replaces our specially-crafted values... I have
patched them.

A way around this I've found is to explicitly pass it the /TP flag, which makes it use its C++ compiler. A bunch of errors about the identifier '__attribute__' being a syntax error then pop up, however, and I haven't found a way around those yet.

These should go away with the next nightly snapshot.
