If you unpack a clean 2.3.6 distribution, cd into the top directory and
apply the enclosed patch via

patch -p0 < mingw.patch
touch aclocal.m4 configure

It should fix the problems. You may get a warning about automake-1.9 not
being available when you "configure and make", but you can ignore that.

I downloaded 2.3.6 extracted and fired configure.

Same results...

This is the mystery: up to the error in compiling interp.c, the
lib-src already have the port of functions compiled!

The issue appears to be that no header file is generated by configure
to have prototypes for those functions.

So when prims.def is included, gcc barfs at "implicit declaration of
function ..." and non existent macros like "ENOTSOCK" generate errors
stopping the build process.
