Comment(by datallah):

 I'm pretty sure that msvcrt.lib on VS9 links to msvcrt8.dll.

 There are a number of issues with this, the most concerning of which
 (assuming that it actually does work) is that we'd have to distribute the
 msvcrt8 runtime (which raises all sorts of licensing questions).

 Can NSS/NSPR be built with VS6 or mingw?

 Also, why mingw-64 instead of mingw?
