Just to reply to myself, GCC 2.95 does in fact produce working executables.
So GCC 3.2+ is doing something unpleasant that MLton doesn't like. MLton
is in good company on this issue -- I'll check if GCC 3.3 resolves the issue
(it has for other compilers).
With this update I've been able to build some partially-working Mingw stuff.
Hopefully I'll have something self-hosting in a few more days.
