I have no idea why it freezes :-(

I understand.
If it's possible for you, I'd suggest to try building with Visual C++.
We use VC++ with our buildbot installation and it works.
See vc80 and vc71 instances:

Also, I'd recommend you to ask your question "How to build GDAL + Python
support with MinGW" on the gdal-dev list too.
There are lurking gurus like Norman Vine. He use MinGW with GDAL and Python
pretty much, AFAIK.

BTW, as I noticed your replies do not reach the fwtools list.
The list address is not included in To: field.
You need to use "reply to all" in order to reply to the list.
If you use "reply" then your message goes directly to me.
