Quote from http://sourceforge.net/project/shownotes.php?release_id=691876:

- Dynamic linking with libgcc_s_dw2-1.dll

Dynamic linking with libgcc_s_dw2-1.dll is necessary to throw
exceptions between different modules, such as between two DLLs or a
DLL and an EXE.  Consequently, it is the default for all languages
other than C.  To disable this dynamic linking, use -static-libgcc.
To enable this dynamic linking in C, use -shared-libgcc.
