configuration, it seems to me that it would be fine to commit a patch

necessarily see that as a reason not to commit a prerequisite patch.
Otherwise, as you say, there's a chicken-and-egg problem, and who does

Yeah, fair enough. I'll work on that.
If we're talking about adding support for a previously-unsupported

Definitely do this (and then file a bug report with the project). I've worked with both Kai and NightStrike from the MingW-W64 project to fix previous bugs, and as long as they can build the offending source themselves then they are very helpful and quick to respond.

Done and done (see <https://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&aid=3458244&group_id=202880&atid=983354>).
