As I wrote elsewhere, this patch would force about 10000 rebuilds
(across all four architectures), which would rule out applying it to
master.

However, I've attached an alternative patch that I hope will do the same
job, but it doesn't force any rebuilds at all, so it could be applied to
master right now.  It carefully arranges to add tests only on the client
side, and to generate the same build-side code, and the same derivations
for normal builds.

Can you try it and see if it works?  If so, I will write more about how
it works.  Maybe the other mingw-related changes to core packages could
follow a similar pattern, and thus be eligible to be applied to master
directly.
