See this thread:

When compiling code invoking gnulib under MinGW, the statement
has to present in duplo to avoid certain errors of the kind: "... is not
a member of 'gnulib'" (where ... could be e.g., gethostname, isatty,
unlink, etc).

This issue has not been solved until now; so here's again a request to
look into it.

This is a complicated issue that we cannot solve by guesswork. What we need
is an unambiguous step-by-step "how to reproduce" recipe. What source code
file to compile (or alternatively, what sources to download), with which
compiler to configure it (there are many mingw versions floating around), etc.

Isn't the analysis in the thread linked to in my post insufficient? Looks fairly step-by-step to me.

I'm not a MinGW developer - I have mailed this bug report at the request of octave devs (see this thread:
(line wrap!))

Hopefully some MinGW devs can jump in?

Thanks Bruno,
