In short: Forget about that. MinGW uses GCC as the compiler, and in turn GCC uses a library format that is not compatible with the DDK libs that MS provides. You'll be better of with VC++ Express, available for free at http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=F3FBB04E-92C2-4701-B4BA-92E26E408569&displaylang=en ("Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 Express Editions with SP1")

Are you maybe confusing SDK and DDK here? A quick Google search (http://www.google.com/search?q=MinGW+DDK) does not really suggest that there is a lot out there that will help you. BTW, VC++ also has a command line interface, just go to 'Tools|Visual Studio Command Prompt'.
