There is a double-quote character missing in front of MYLDFLAGS here,
and in the same place in the new lua-5.1-alpha Makefile

With this change, this mingw target also works for MinGW/MSYS on Windows.

For those willing to live dangerously (in the sense that extra symbols
are exported from the DLL that are not official Lua APIs):

        cd src; $(MAKE) "LUA_A=lua51.dll" "LUA_T=lua.exe" "LUAC_T=luac.exe" \
        "AR=gcc -shared -Wl,--export-all-symbols -o" "RANLIB=strip --strip-unneeded" \
