[vlc-devel] Problems cross compiling to windows according to Win32Compile

Have you used the ffmpeg mingw build script to compile VLC? What is the 
correct parameters to send to the mingw build script? I am using

./mingw-w64-build-3.6.0 --build-type=win64 --default-configure 
--enable-gendef --enable-nls --disable-shared

but when I get to build the win32 distribution it complains that it 
cannot find libgcc_s. Are the above the correct way to build the tool 
chain for static compiling of VLC?
