Even mingw is not very good right now. Without --enable-shared, all goes 
well, but with --enable-shared you dont get the linking you expect: 
avcodec.dll contains avutil.dll, avformat.dll contains avutil and 
avcodec, etc. I have posted that I have reached a point where a *policy* 
decision, i.e. a ukase by core members, is needed. See a message of mine 
with 'policy' in the subject. Until I have it, I'm stuck...
