If have not tried this yet.

But if I would, I would make sure it links 
against the MS C lib, thus using mingw mode,
as Erlang was compiled with the MS compiler.

Read the doc

which explains a similiar problem, building Mozilla
on Win32, and has links how to use gcc or download
and use the free available MS cl (commandline C) compiler.
