I don't know; I don't use mingw32.
OTOH, I cannot see what the problem might be - except that you will
have to link with msvcr71.dll at the end, not with msvcrt40.dll.

Sure: Please try my installer at
Notice that this doesn't include msvcr71.dll, which I could provide
It also does not include msvcr71.lib - I have no clue how you would
get a copy of that. But then, somehow, msvcrt40.lib (or is it
msvcrt40.a) must have gotten into mingw32 also.
