When I look at the test matrix at
all the gcc-mngw versions are failing. I checked the first one which
happened to be gcc 3.4 and that was the message. I mistakenly assumed
that all the failures were due to the same issue. So I see you're right

So the library is failing to build for all mngw platforms.
Unfortunately, the test matrix truncates the error messages due to a
large number of warnings on that plaform before any actual error message
is displayed. This makes it impossible to make the library work on this
plaform. This an ongoing problem which I've complained before - alas
without getting anyone to take action.
