Doesn't MingGW32 avoid the use of side by side assemblies?
It does, but it's a significantly slower compiler, so it's not much fun for development (I'd say about 5 x slower).
Most of the complilation slowness I see under MingGW32 is due to the 'make' program rather than the compiler. Current MinGW make is file name case-insensitive via trying all case permutations. This is super expensive for directories accessed via network drives. When I type 'make' for a GraphicsMagick build with the source on a network drive (Samba) it takes over a minute before MinGW make does anything at all.
