So I have tried the MinGW-5.0.3.exe in Wine, but it tries to install
from some wrong url and it fails to install.
I have unpacked the tarballs by hand into "~/.wine/drive_c/MinGW":

binutils-2.17.50-20070129-1.tar.gz
w32api-3.7.tar.gz
gcc-g77-3.4.5-20051220-1.tar.gz
gcc-g++-3.4.5-20051220-1.tar.gz
gcc-core-3.4.5-20051220-1.tar.gz
mingw-runtime-3.10.tar.gz

also in the same directory, I had to do:

cp ../windows/system32/msvcr90.dll lib/

Also I've added the bin directory to PATH using the following trick:

$ cat > tmp <<EOF
REGEDIT4

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Environment]
"PATH"="C:\\\\MinGW\\\\bin"
EOF
$ wine regedit tmp



Then I build and installed numpy using:

wine "C:\Python27\python" setup.py build --compiler=mingw32 install

And now there is no segfault when constructing a complex array! So
newer (newest) mingw miscompiles NumPy somehow...


Anyway, running tests, it gets much farther then before, now it hangs at:


test_multiarray.TestIO.test_ascii ...
err:ntdll:RtlpWaitForCriticalSection section 0x785b7428 "?" wait timed
out in thread 0009, blocked by 0000, retrying (60 sec)
fixme:keyboard:X11DRV_ActivateKeyboardLayout 0x4090409, 0000: semi-stub!

err:ntdll:RtlpWaitForCriticalSection section 0x785b7428 "?" wait timed
out in thread 0009, blocked by 0000, retrying (60 sec)
...

Not sure what this problem is yet.
