Hi Marc,
i never tried mingw, but i guess i should.....

Building a flext dll and dynamical libraries is in principle fully supported
(but still inofficial since i have yet to deal with naming and versioning
Shared flext libraries are already built under Linux and OSX.
Under Windows, edit makefile.pd-msvc to enable the shared targets. You
should probably not enable sndobjs or STK integration for that.
Then, just build your externals with -D FLEXT_SHARED (this will also enable
threading) and link to the flext.dll. It's a good thing since it will make
flext-based externals really small....

best greetings,
