Please inform us.

I think yes. All what extends usage case of the tcc on Windows is a
sensible criterion.

Btw, a nimrod developers consider a tcc as backed for REPL on Windows.

All changes are protected by a CONFIG_TCC_EXSYMTAB. This is done to
keep tcc clean when "./configure --enable-exsymtab" is not used. I
will test this behaviour more.
Keeping somewhere this patch will allow not to introduce a changes
which make porting much harder. I will try to follow your work and
keep a patch in sync with the current mob.

Yes, I agree.

PS: there are some error messages in exsymtab tests output which I
don't see in the original branch (as some function defined twice)
