So, if that is the only difference, can't we make this fix nicer than having
two almost identical Makefiles added?

I see two possible approaches:

1. Dynamicly check in the Makefile for what condition that seems to fit. gcc
   or mingw.

2. Make the configure script ask the user what compiler that is being used,
   and then invoke make with a proper command line that allows it to do the
   correct action for the compiler of choice.

Also, please use the command line option -b as well when creating the diff,
as then we'll get a smaller diff (your editor seem to have modified
spaces/tabs that show up in the diff).
