Interesting, yes that does make some sense as the function is not
visible outside the library... Can you put the function into the header?

those export macro's evaluate to declspec(dllimport) when the file is
#included in a c++ file outside the same library and they evaluate to
declspec(dllexport) in the case that the file is included or compiled in
the library it belongs to. 

The question is why mingw thinks the function is defined twice.  And I
really have no good idea either :(
