This does not feel correct as a quick glance. Are you sure you
understand what you are doing?

In normal operation, I would have assumed that msys2 returns
mingw-something and that any msys mode was a special case for
building binaries with the cygwin/posix emulation layer, but
you are adding msys to a bunch of places which are mingw-only.
So, it all feels fishy.

Also, how does this affect msys1?
