You complain that modern distros are "too new" hardware, yet you run one
in a VM. I do not see how this is mingw-w64 related.

MSVCRT is a WINDOWS C runtime, it doesn't have anything to do with
Linux, in any case, you will already need a working cross compiler for
Windows to use it. To use the cross compiler under Linux, it has to be
built for Linux, not Windows.

Exactly, so remind me how mingw-w64 is involved again? mingw-w64 doesn't
provide any gnu environment at all, you already have a Linux VM, use it
for your "fully baked" gnu environment.

Why not? Either it works, or it does not.
