I started writing instructions for building mingw-w64 binaries with
msys2, which is what we also use for the R project:

These are pretty minimal instructions (msys2 is a pretty advanced
build system), but it would be interesting to hear from Windows users
if you were able to get started using these instructions, or if/where
you got stuck.
