Exactly.  This is a linker, not a compiler issue.  If you are using a
relatively recent binutils and mingw run time, the addition of the switch
-Wl,--enable-runtime-pseudo-reloc-v2 should get around the READONLY problem.
Otherwise, you could always just add __declspec (dllimport) to
 extern int foo[2]; and so retain portability with the rest of the PE-COFF
