The only rule I follow (religiously, btw) is not to overwrite a DLL
with an older one, judging by its time stamp.  I didn't find any other
issues.

The question is: can we amend the instructions to make them less
error-prone?  The manual instructions are very detailed, and I can
vouch for their correctness because that's what I used.  The mingw-get
instructions are from someone else, so those who use it are kindly
requested to help with making them better, as much as possible.
