Hopefully saving the day of others reading this ;-)

The mingw technology preview 4.2.1 has a small bug in it.
The toolset cannot be run out of the box without setting
the PATH to contain the path-to-mingw/bin directory.

For those that cannot change the PATH for one or the other
reason luckily there is a work-around:

gcc's searched bin directories contain the directory
If one places a copy of the binutils to this directory
the compiler works as expected.

It is also possible to make a symlink with the linkd
command between path-to-mingw/bin and path-to-mingw/mingw32/bin.

Regards Roland
