[gambit-list] Compilation of gambit (git master) on/for Windows 7 64 bit using mingw64 x86_64 fails

according to config.log HAVE_SELECT is defined as 1. I changed the priority of HAVE_SELECT and HAVE_MSGWAITFORMULTIPLEOBJECTS by changing the ifdef in os.h accordingly and was then able to compile gambit-c successfully.

The self test 'make check' failed in the error.scm test case: (make-string 536870911) causes a segfault in gsi.exe. (make-string 536870910) works. For (make-vector <big-number-here>) gsi segfaults too.

tests 4,5 and 6 fail with "Signed 32 bit exact integer expected".

>In os_io.h, ___device_select_state contains those two slots only if the USE_MsgWaitForMultipleObjects define is enabled.
>os.h defines it like this
>#define USE_select
>#define USE_MsgWaitForMultipleObjects
>That's funny, on Windows it's supposed to always use MsgWaitForMultipleObjects rather than select..
>can you see what your HAVE_SELECT and HAVE_MSGWAITFORMULTIPLEOBJECTS configuration is?
