I believe hlc.par.gc grade requires pthreads, but MinGW
doesn't support pthreads.  There is a pthreads emulation library for
windows, but I've not tried it yet.

You can limit the installed grades by passing the --enable-libgrades
option to configure.

For example:

./configure --enable-libgrades=hlc.gc,asm_fast.gc,asm_fast.gc.decldebug

I'll look at changing configure to not install hlc.par.gc on MinGW by
default when I get some spare time.
