correction: that's http://bugs.python.org/issue5026 apologies for the mix-up.

also,for the msvcrt80 build, it is _essential_ that you use a patched
version of mingw32-runtime, see:
https://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=2134161&group_id=2435&atid=352435
libmsvcr80.a mistakenly thinks that _fstat exists (it doesn't - only
_fstat32 does, and many more).
it's quite straightforward to rebuild - just remember to run
./configure --prefix=/mingw and if you want to revert just reinstall
mingw runtime .exe
