No, MinGW runtime library isn't supposed to be fully compatible with
the Microsoft runtime library.  While MinGW happens to use part of an
older Microsoft runtime library (MSVCRT.DLL) the goal of the MinGW has
never been to make a compiler that was 100% compatible with any version
of the Microsoft C compiler.  There also isn't anything wrong with the
Microsoft runtime.  A library that mixes both objects and import records
is perfectly legitimate.
