That is the one this issue is about. It *is* possible (mingw grew the
-lmsvcr100 and similar flags, at least in part to support it). But
it's not easy to set up, and the people asking for it to be supported
have never really addressed all of the issues involved (at least not
in a reproducible/supportable way).

Building Python with mingw, while out of scope for this particular
issue, has always failed because nobody has been willing to step up
and offer the long-term support commitment that would be required,
