It's also important to use official MinGW, not stuff like TDM builds.
That's because of differences in exceptions models. Also there were some
fixes in runtime libraries and some tools which are needed to compile
blender and launch it fine. Probably you'll want to update your mingw (not
sure it it's up to date, but compiler looks a bit old :)
