I have exactly the same problem, I still haven't found out why exactly (in 
fact, I'm kind of waiting for the next MsysDTK release which I hope will 
solve the problem).

Unfortunately for you, building the development version of vlc has only been 
fully tested using the mingw32 cross-compiler under linux. Which means that 
if you want to compile vlc without too much trouble, you'll have to use 
this setup.
I hope this will be fixed soon though.

Otherwise, you may also want try to compile vlc under cygwin. Just make sure 
you follow the instructions in the INSTALL.win32 file.

Hope this help,
