afaik, there's no reason the objects shouldn't compile; the problem is
that my pd-extended build rules use GNU make macros, and the make on the
PdLab winxp build machine is "broken" (v3.79), meaning it doesn't handle
macros propertly.  i'm also unsure whether "configure" & co will work on
mingw32, but that I can test (later... currently on baby duty)...
