As I already noted, ftelli64's availability depends on the version of the 
MSVCRT DLL on the system. Frank's MinGW is apparently too old to contain the 
ftelli64 symbol in the libmsvcrt import library.

Always quote specific version numbers.
The MSYS I use is

MINGW32_NT-6.1 VIEL64 1.0.17(0.48/3/2) 2011-04-24 23:39 i686 Msys

I'm using MinGW from mingw-w64 (builds both 32 and 64 bit binaries) version
