Last time I tried (not too long ago, and there haven't been new 
releases), mingw32 make didn't work. There's even a note on the 
documentation about this.

Note to Diego: the online documentation doesn't even have r12905. How 
often is it updated?

This is confusing. First you said there was a problem with .a files, but 
with shared libraries...?

Besides the thing about lib's path is also in the documentation.
