[Bf-committers] Compiling under Windows with MinGW

My short term goal is to publish an up-to-date doc on how to compile using MinGW (as opposed to Cygwin). I've read all the available doc and managed to pretty much compile all the Blender code. My problem is trying to link the Blender executable.

****> Link /home/mmiddlet/2.34/blender/obj/windows/bin/blender.exe
g++ -DNDEBUG -O2 -DBUILD_DATE='"2004-10-21"' -DBUILD_TIME='"07:26:53"' -DBUILD_PLATFORM='"windows"' -DBUILD_TYPE='"dynamic"' /home/mmiddlet/2.34/blender/source/creator/buildinfo.c -c -o /home/mmiddlet/2.34/blender/obj/windows/buildinfo.o -DNAN_BUILDINFO
C:/msys/1.0/home/mmiddlet/2.34/blender/source/creator/buildinfo.c:44:26: winbuildinfo.h: No such file or directory
make[1]: *** [/home/mmiddlet/2.34/blender/obj/windows/bin/blender.exe] Error 1
make: *** [all] Error 1

I don't seem to have a winbuildinfo.h file anywhere. BTW, in order to minimze my pain in starting the process, I decided to try re-building Blender 2.34 by checking out all the code with the blender-2-34-release tag. I thought that should pretty much compile out of the box. Alas, I have the exact same problem in that code tree. Any suggestions?
