I don't want to re-launch this thread while another one is now more
current but my (short) comment felt more appropriate here.

I'm actually not reading it one way or the other: I am saying that the
code is changed so there can be a difference for an environment we know
is used to build mingw-w64.

It's now been two weeks and there has been no comment from the
interested party which we know reads this mailing-list. I think we can
safely conclude it is safe to go on without specific consideration for
that case since both versions seem to be fine.
