The fact that I can compile it under MSVC doesn't necessarily mean
that you'll be able to compile it out of the box on MinGW. To make it
work, I actually had to hack libvte (a lot) and readline (a little):
- implement a pipe-based communication instead of pty
- implement a native Win32 renderer for libvte (for performance
reasons, the default pango+cairo rendere being way too slow)
- implement custom terminal resize support in readline

Part of these have never been published.
