WRT mingw32ccompily.py, I think we should simply avoid overriding
self.dll_libraries at all. I believe that distutils' defaults are set
appropriately in 2.3 and 2.4 if the specs file is correct.

Fixing the specs file seemed to be instrumental in the "begging for
binaries" thread. One might be able to futz around with gcc command line
options to override that part of the specs file, but I haven't delved
through that part of the gcc manual in a looong time.
