I had this exact same problem myself on mingw but was never able to
resolve it. I'd be interested in whether someone else manages it.

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?
