I am not sure whether you're replying to my observation or just giving
a status update: with mingw-w64 (or recent mingw), the built installer
will depend on several .dll (libgcc_s_sjil.dll) that we can't easily
distribute. The only place we can realistically put them is in
C:\Python$VERSION (or wherever python happens to be installed), and I
think it is a very bad idea to install dll from NumPy there. In
Windows 2008 and above, one can refer in .pyd where to look for dlls
in another directory which is private to numpy.
