What's a Windows MSVCR?
Since the same program compiled with cygwins' gcc has LC_MESSAGES
defined, I was guessing it was just a library thing and maybe it just
hadn't been implemented in the mingw libraries yet.. but it sounds
like it's not an oversight & Microsoft needs to support LC_MESSAGES
before i686-w64-mingw32-gcc will. Is that about right?
