Hi Juan,

In order to try windows build without installing older gcc, I tried to
build it using clang.
It built C code fine, but failed in linking phase.

I opened a bug at

It seems that gcc and clang on windows use different naming convention for
exported symbols (leading underscores or not) on windows. I don't have an
idea if fixing clang/windows build would be simple enough to take it into
the release?
