Think that the MinGW64/MSYS2 developers know the issue. There is an
emacs-git build recipe in MSYS2 with no corresponding binary package,
because the build fails.

Right now the emacs master build finished correctly on Windows XP 32
bits with MSYS2 with the same binary packages as the Windows 8.1 64 bits
with MSYS2 64 bits, where the temacs.exe problem happens. It seems that
there is something on MSYS2 64 bits that affects how temacs.exe is
created. I'll mention this data point on the MSYS2 ml.
