[Image-SIG] PIL 1.1.7, windows compilation: problem to save image file

I answer to myself...
I'm using mingw to compile PIL. By default, gcc used msvcrt.dll library,
and the write() function is call through this lib while python.exe
creates the handle through msvcr71.dll.
That's why when I've recreated the handle, both open() and write() call
the same lib (msvcrt.dll), and everything worked.
To solve it, I've change the specs file of gcc by replacing -lmsvcrt
with -lmsvcr71 in the libgcc section, and change write() to _write() in
I hope this could be helpful...
