Unfortunately I currently cannot contribute anything to the discussion(s)
around build systems and MinGW, but the difference may well be caused by
the outdated gcc in stock MinGW. Maybe try a very recent 4.3.2 one from
here: http://www.tdragon.net/recentgcc/ - it has worked very well so far
and even supports OpenMP. :)
This is what I tried to use with cmake on Windows, but as zmq apparently
still depends on autotools (which I neither have nor will install) I
didn't get further yet. not enough time at the moment..sorry about that.
