Nop, actually the only thing I did now was trying to compile it. And 
this is not finished ! I need to compile the testsuite (to test...) and 
the plugins (those that are Windows friendly at least).

I just tried your command-line and it seems to come from a call to 
poptGetContext() in gst.c:358... So I assume the libpopt I found gives 
problems under Win32. I'll investigate more (ie try to find another one 
or compile it myself)... Yes, something as simple as popt relies heavily 
on OS assumptions :(
