not widespread - are you talking about mingw32 here ?

As I understand mingw32 is basically gcc repackaged (new header files
and default options) to build native win32 binaries. It's basically
the same as using cygwin with the option that makes it not use the
cygwin dll file.

Of course I think I'm right. If I thought I was wrong, I'd change my mind.
