You're running this under cygwin? I usually do a
CC="gcc -mno-cygwin" CPPFLAGS="-Ic:/mingw/include -Lc:/mingw/lib"
otherwise the configure script will pick up cygwin
headers&libraries (since it uses plain gcc by default).
We should perhaps detect this in the configure script, and add
-mno-cygwin if a mingw-ghc is detected.
Or, more correctly, use ghc as gcc in the configure script, since that
is how the c files are compiled anyway, but that didn't work last time I
tried, I guess it wants -optc or -optl in front of some of the flags
