We gave a try to MinGW with gcc 4.3.2 (tdm-mingw-1.812.0-f1.exe from 
Here are the results:

latency test 100000 msgs, 1B
throughput test 10000000 msgs, 1B

MinGW (gcc 3.4.5)
latency: 118.52 us
throughput: 2.4 Mmsg/s

MinGW (gcc 4.3.2)
latency: 113.6 us
throughput: 2.6 Mmsg/s

For the test two ordinary untuned desktop PCs were used with 1Gb switched
network connection.

As one can see there is no statistically relevant performance difference 
between 0MQ built on gcc 3.4.5 and gcc 4.3.2 in MinGW environment.
