No problem.  Mike has been looking into this as well.  Also, there are
commits that should probably be squashed into this, such as

    9a29293a8 More long integer fixes for x86_64-w64-mingw32
    46bb667f2 MinGW 64: fixes hash out-of-range error for 64-bit negative

Yeah, that seems wise.

Also there is still an unresolved problem with file-name-convention.

We probably want

    2d82b49cf mingw: canonicalize-path: Also canonicalize drive letter and '/'.

Also, during a (cross)build, file-name-convention from build host is
used/assumed.  I tried to creat a fix

   9bfd0b544 squash! Fix 'absolute-file-name?' and others for cross-build to 
   96597fa21 Fix 'absolute-file-name?' and others for cross-build to MinGW.

but iirc, Mike found a problem with these.  Hairy stuff.

You're welcome, it's great that guile at least builds with MintGW now.
