    23  
    24 If you're on Vista, first of all you need to disable "installer-detection", which causes strange things to happen for binaries called "setup.exe", amongst other things.  Go to `Start -> All Programs -> Accessories > Run` and enter `secpol.msc`.  Then under `Security Settings -> Local Policies -> Security Options`,  disable `UAC: Detect application installations and prompt for elevation`.  Then reboot. 
    25  
    26 When building against MingW, make sure that the paths of MingW's gcc.exe and cc1.exe are in your PATH environment variable. 
    27 Best put them at the front. Otherwise Cygwin's executables might be found rather than MingW's. If you do not 
    28 set the path's correctly, you may get the following error in config.log: 
    29 {{{ 
    30   configure:3321: checking for C compiler default output file name 
    31   configure:3348: c:/MinGW/bin/gcc    conftest.c  >&5 
    32   ld: /mingw/lib/crt2.o: No such file: No such file or directory 
    33   configure:3351: $? = 1 
    34   configure:3389: result: 
    35   configure: failed program was: 
    36   configure:3396: error: C compiler cannot create executables 
    37   See `config.log' for more details. 
    38 }}} 
    39 From within a Cygwin terminal, you can set PATH like: 
    40 {{{ 
    41   export PATH=/cygdrive/c/MingW/bin/:/cygdrive/c/MingW/libexec/gcc/mingw32/3.4.2/:$PATH 
    42 }}} 
    43 If you are unsure whether you have set PATH correctly, try to compile a simple C program 
    44 with MingW's gcc first.
