It well works for my projects with 32 and 64-bit targets using this same
TDM MingW64. Nevertheless (it could have some importance), I don't use the
last release (4.8 or more, don't remember), but the 4.7.1.

Hummm, not an option for me since my project and others libs that I
periodically update are currently all built using native MinGW. Or course,
the big disadvantage is not to take advantage of configure, I agree.

:) Funny since I have the reciprocal experience. In the past I was with
the regular MinGW (32-bit only at this epoch) and I switched to TDM flavor
because of issues with a big lib my current project is based-on
(wxWidgets). So, of course I prefer to avoid to break my working
environment (not a matter of religion, but a simple pragmatic approach.

But I see another reply from you and it sounds good (I go to reply just
