Hello Vasili, I did not test it (I do not have any Windows box),
however I have various questions:

1) Could you (or someone else) provides a test build system that
would build PARI SVN HEAD with mingw every days and post the result to
<> ?
(If you can provide that, I will give you more detail).

2) If not, do you know how to cross-compile it on linux ?
(I have a mingw32 cross-compiler already).

3) Did you try to run "make test-all" or only "make bench" ?

4) Would the hires plotting also work with Visual C++ ?

5) Would the Windows console support work with cygwin ?

6) Is gp2c support possible ?

Thanks for your patch!
