[Mingw-msys] Cross Platform Makefiles

Hi all, 

I post this thread because I recently installed mingw and msys (under
Windows XP) and I can´t compile a simple "hello world" program.

The steps I followed where:

Download MinGW using the installer MinGW-5.1.3.exe and install it in
Download Msys using the installer MSYS-1.0.10.exe and install it in c:/Msys
(at the end of the installation progress I give the path to the minGW
directory (c:/MinGW)). 
Download Msys-DTK using the installes msysDTK-1.0.1.exe and install it
overwriting Msys installed files.

When I tried to compile I got:

$ gcc -o hello hello.c 
This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual
Please contact the application's support team for more information. 

But the gcc command is correctly detected:

$ which gcc 

And If I type: $ gcc -v I get:

Reading specs from c:/msys/1.0/mingw/bin/../lib/gcc/mingw32/3.4.5/specs 
Configured with: ../gcc-3.4.5/configure --with-gcc --with-gnu-ld

--disable-libgcj-debug --enable-interpreter --enable-hash-synchronization
Thread model: win32 
gcc version 3.4.5 (mingw special) 

Anyone has any ideas? One curious thing is that if I try to compile the same
file in the same directory, with the same gcc (I know is the same gcc
because if I remove "c:/msys/1.0/mingw/bin" from the PATH, gcc command is
not recognized) but from the MSDOS shell, the compilation is ok!!!!! why can
I compile perfectly from MS-DOS and not from Msys???

Thank you very much
