But everybody else who builds on Windows here uses MSYS2, so I still don't 
understand the problem you had in mind.

Do you mean MSYS2 or do you mean MinGW64?  The former is supposed to work like 
MSYS, for the latter I always check in their sources to make sure nothing would 
break.  And again, others build with those tools and report (rare) problems 
when they happen.  And if people stop using our build procedure with MinGW64, 
there will be no reason to worry about it not working, right?
