I'm sorry, but since no one has stepped forward to look at this it will
not be fixed in 2.12 (which is getting rapidly closer).

I spent all of this evening attempting to build a mingw32 toolchain.  I
can't do it; no matter what I try gcc dies unable to find limits.h when
building winsup.

I hacked around that, and was able to build a 'bad' DLL.  Looking at
make_head, I bet I know what is wrong, but I don't know how to fix it:
offsets in one section pointing into another following section.  The
sections are presumably coming out in a different order.

So either someone else feels like fixing this, or it waits.
