I'd urge all those who are tracking development sources to please use
the official established build procedure.  Using 3rd-party packages
whose procedures deviate from the project instructions is susceptible
to bumping into problems that stem from using those deviant
procedures, which is an added maintenance burden I think we'd like to
avoid.  Also, doing so means less testing for the official build

If you can convince the MSYS2 maintainers to adopt the official build
procedure, it would be even better.  Failing that, please consider
switching back to what the project recommends, what is documented in
the relevant INSTALL documents.
