Errors when running the relative executables after compiling gnupg-2.0.18 on MinGW

Yes, you're right![?]
I am able to cross-build it on my Ubuntu OS using command './
--build-w32' instead of './configure' at the first step.
Then run command 'make' to build the executables(gpg2.exe, gpgv2.exe,
gpgsm.exe, etc) for Microsoft Windows.

Now all the exes do work  well on my Windows 7 PC.

Thank you.
