building mingw toolchain

I know that it's beyond a noob like me but perhaps Gurus like coderjeff, St_W, D.J.Peters or TeeEmCee is up to the task?

Stephan T. Lavavej, Principal Software Development Engineer at Microsoft, maintaining Visual Studio's C++ Standard Library implementation, has been providing a MinGW build for several years at

https://nuwen.net/mingw.html

The build scripts for MinGW and all the other Libraries and utilities included are in the distribution which is based on GCC 9.2 and MinGW-64 7. Nuwen was last updated in December 2019. The binaries provided in the distro are 64 bit native only but the build scripts can be modified to output whatever you want. The build is done through MSys2.

thanks robert
I might give it a go, the problem is that if something doesn't go right I won't have a clue on how to resolve it :-)
