Building gsl-1.14 with mingw64 in msys shell on MS Windows

Hi,

I have Windows Vista64, and I was trying to build gsl-1.14 in the msys shell 
using mingw64 (gcc-4.4.4).

I started with:

$ 
./configure --build=x86_64-w64-mingw32 --host=x86_64-w64-mingw32 --disable-shared 
 --enable-static && make

It ran for quite a long time - I was even starting to think it was going to 
succeed. Eventually the 'make' step croaked with:

make[2]: Entering directory `/c/_64/comp/gsl-1.14'
/bin/sh ./libtool --tag=CC   --mode=compile 
x86_64-w64-mingw32-gcc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I.     -g -O2 -MT

Does anyone here know what's required to get it to build successfully on 
this platform ? I can build a 32-bit library on the same PC, but I'd really 
like to have a 64-bit build if such is possible. Unfortunately, the error 
message doesn't mean anything to me.

Cheers,
Rob
