I would suggest looking in GPG4WIN to see if the necessary files are
already there.  The GNU C compiler is ABI-compatible with Microsoft's C
compiler; it's only in C++ that the ABIs change.

Otherwise, I'd suggest asking on the MinGW list about using Microsoft's
cl command-line compiler with Autotools.

Finally, Microsoft's C++ compiler is, by default, not a C++ compiler at
all.  If you're working with C++ I would strongly suggest using Intel's
C++ compiler, the GNU C++ compiler, or Sun's C++ compiler, all of which
are available at very low cost to students.

This is rude.  If you're going to come on a mailing list asking for
help, you should read the mailing list in order to see your replies.
