Compiling drivers with MinGW?

Has anyone been able to create a driver DLL using MinGW? The problem that
I'm running into is that the libraries in $ERL_TOP/lib/erl_interface/lib
are in MSVC format. Has anyone been able to either:

a) Convert the .lib's to GCC-compliant .a's?
b) Compile the erl_interface source using MinGW?

I suppose as a last resort, I could change the erl_interface build to
generate a DLL instead of static libraries, but that would be less than
optimal.

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks,
