Setting up mingw without mingw-get from scratch (resolving all the
necessary dependencies) looks like it could take at least a week here.
Maybe I'm wrong but it appears that every DL and installation step has
to be prepared carefully wrt overwriting (or not) previously installed

Using mingw-get (which I did) is complicated as well if you want to
avoid falling into one of the traps mentioned in this thread.
