I guessed the crash had to do with the LLP ABI flavour
on the 64-bit Windows.  However, I was away from
imagining the root cause of the last two items on the list.

libatomic_ops that ships with ECL builds fine for me.
I am stuck with CVS on windows machine.
[ I do not want msysgit to mess with my gcc setup on my machine. ]

Otherwise, ECL seems now to build.  I have not tested yet with OpenAxiom.
