MinGW is (and always has been) only marginally supported,
unfortunately. I'd rather it didn't break totally for 3.5, but I am
anticipating some difficulties (there have been a lot of
compiler-related changes with 3.5).

Could you raise a bug, including details of precisely how you tried to
build the module (presumably
https://pypi.python.org/pypi/regex/2015.05.10) and assign it to me?
I'll try to take a look and reproduce the issue. With luck, it may be
as simple as the wrong version of libpython35.a being picked up

Just to check the obvious - you *are* using 32-bit Python 3.5b1 and a
32-bit Mingw to build the 32-bit version, and 64-bit Python 3.5b1 and
a 64-bit Mingw to build the 64-bit one? (I.e., two installations of
Python and two of Mingw)
