GNU Prolog for WinXP tries to use link.exe as linker

I've installed GNU Prolog 1.3.1 (current stable) as a binary from your
website, gprolog.org,
for Windows XP with MSVC 6.0.

The interactive console seems to execute properly, but when I try to
compile to native code
I run into a problem.  The compiler phase works, but when it tries to
do the linker phase, it
reports cl.exe cannot be found and "we use link.exe".  However
link.exe is not a linker, but
a GNU coreutils program that creates symlinks.  It doesn't understand
the linker options,
so the error message itself is a little cryptic:

*** Linking

cl.exe not found ! we use link.exe
link /nologo /stack:8000000 /out:sudoku1 C:\DOCUME~1\CHIPEA~1\LOCALS~1\Temp\gplc

Try `link --help' for more information.
compilation failed
deleting temporary files before exit
delete C:\DOCUME~1\CHIPEA~1\LOCALS~1\Temp\gplc5.obj
delete C:\DOCUME~1\CHIPEA~1\LOCALS~1\Temp\gplc5.obj

I believe that GNU utility "ld" is probably the linker that was intended here.
