I just posted numerous patches to magnum, to get mingw to partly compile.  I needed to get it building again, to get the md?-mmx.o, the x86.o and other asm stuff, so that my visual C was back up to date. VC can not build the asm, and the only build that properly builds in the VC 'marshalling' code for the mmx asm, is mingw.  However, mine still has problems, and will not link right.

NOTE, there are a few new non-hash formats that have issues in non linux system.  But with some of the recent changes, mingw should be 'close' to working.  It may require a plug format or 2 to be removed from the build dir, but it should not be too hard to build.

I pretty much gave up with mingw building, about 18 months ago, and now simply use cygwin.  thus I have not kept my mingw up to date.  It very well may be that an up to date mingw would work just fine.
