There are no shared libraries involved.
To get more information, you'd probably have to get the test suite and try it.
Let me know if you'd like to see it.

Are there shared libraries involved?  Here's an important patch:

1999-12-08  Geoff Keating  <geoffk@cygnus.com>

     * config/rs6000/rs6000.md (nonlocal_goto_receiver): Turn into
     define_expand/define_insn pair, and handle restore of the
     SVR4 -fpic register.

There's a similar patch for x86, but it is only necessary when using
sjlj exceptions.  Does the Win32 compiler use sjlj exceptions?

It's hard to know what else it could be without more information.
