I suspect that is because I am using an older gcc (3.4.5) for
cross-compilation, and that version is less eager to use dlls
for its own runtime. IIRC, even with the newer gccs there is a
command line switch to link those runtime dlls statically
(but it will probably mean you have to install another mingw
