I'm using mingw to build python extensions.  To ensure maximum
portability across windows platforms (98, ME, NT, XP) is it a good
idea to build on a lowest common denominator system, eg, 98, or should
it not matter?  I'm worried, for example, that windows ME might have a
funny system library that end up in the pyd and other systems will
fail to link.
