Well, then, my question is:

      Why on earth do you need to build GnuPG with MinGW/Msys, given
      we have another recommended way to build GnuPG for Windows?

Even if there were some valid reasons, I still have concern here.  I'm
afraid that it would result another incompatible GnuPG.  My major
concern is using smartcard/token and/or gpg-agent.  The GnuPG built
with MinGW wouldn't work well wrt PC/SC service and emulation of 
Unix domain socket.
