Do you read the output of configure to make sure everything is being detected correctly?
I haven't been building the 0.74-3 exe, just testing against the official download.
Out of interest, I performed a 32-bit MinGW build of SVN though as I hadn't tested that in a while. I didn't see anything untoward in the configure output but performance of this executable is better than I used to get: 4550000 parrots, 1687.1 XT. Not as fast as a VS build, but significantly faster than stock 0.74-3 in Speedtst (3033333 parrots, 1124.7 XT). VS build is still 11% faster though. Maybe something has changed because I seem to recall getting performance similar to stock with my SVN builds in the past.
To be fair, the performance delta between 32-bit builds in Quake at 320x200 doesn't seem as dramatic as that shown in the Speedtst scores. 0.74-3 gets ~212fps, 32-bit MinGW SVN build gets ~220fps, 32-bit VS build gets ~245. The VS build is about 15% faster than 0.74-3 and is 11% faster than the MinGW SVN build (same as Speedtst result). No reason to use any of these over a 64-bit build though, as that's significantly faster than all of them.
EDIT: Changed MinGW 32-bit result as the score I previously got was a low outlier.
