When trying to build the source:

Modules/posixmodule.c fails to build.

I'm running on XP SP1 using 
mingw32-make ver 3.80

Is there any known issues on XP?

What exactly does "it crashes" mean? Do you get a blue

Let me know if that helps or if you need other info.

Is this still happening with 2.3.5 or 2.4.1?

The bug report is old and I haven't heard from problems with mingw
recently. Please open a new bug report if it still fails for 2.5 and newer.
