I talked to psyfi over IRC around half a year ago and told him I'd like 
to help with this.  There have been several complications along the way, 
such as which MinGW version we should use, rumors that clang was coming 
into the picture, and general inactivity regarding anything MinGW.

As for which MinGW version to use, my conversation with psyfi was mainly 
about adding libraries to the mingw64_gcc49 branch he started.  To that 
end, I did compile some libraries with MinGW-W64 GCC 4.9, but I must 
have deleted them some time ago.

Anyway, like I told psyfi, I'm willing to help with this.  Just need to 
know which MinGW version to use.
