[Numpy-discussion] C99 math funcs and windows

Many tests (14) are failing on windows because of the recent changes
in some maths functions (C99 conformance). I believe the problem is
caused by mingw compiler (which is stuck at 3.4.5), but I still have
to check that. To solve this, I see three solutions:
 - disabling the C99 tests on windows. Easy
 - using a more recent version of mingw: mingw does not officially
support gcc 4, but we can built it ourselves. Not too difficult (I
have some makefiles to build a toolchain from scratch on linux/mac os
x), but I don't like the idea of using our own compiler.
 - we don't care, tests fail on windows.

Do some people have a strong opinion on that ? Disabling sounds like
the way to go for 1.2.0, but at some point, we will have to deal with
this C99 problem on windows if people add more C99 code in it.
