That's not because the *compilers* are different, that is because they
link to different versions of the runtime (libc/msvcrt versions). This
is documented as safe if and only if you don't pass CRT pointers between
the two modules. (for example, this kills gettext because of the
overriding of the *printf* functions)

As long as the lib is the same, the compiler *sohuldn't* matter. That's
not to say that it's so in reality, though ;-)
