Thanks for your reply.

1. I don't want to depend on other packages that implement GSL. (Too  
heavy for my purpose)

2. I used "LIB_GSL" environment variable in my Makevars.win  
(https://github.com/Neplex/COveR/blob/master/src/Makevars.win take  
from GSL package itself) but it seems to not used the Makevars (see  
compiler flags  

Have you an idea?
