Python does not support being built with MinGW, but we have "support" to build extensions with MinGW. It isn't great support, and we're open to patches/contributions (none of our core Windows devs use MinGW AFAIK).

And yes, VC is different from MinGW because MinGW is trying to copy a different operating system. Where possible, Python generally tries to follow the conventions of the underlying operating system, which is why we build with VC and not gcc on Windows.
