No one ever made it work. We still await patches that fix this problem!

AFAIK, it isn't possible without hands-on fiddling. The only way to build the
sim on Windows is currently the MSVC way.

The reason for the mingw's existance in that makefile is that we have a
mingw cross-compiler running on Linux for the compile-status table on the web
site. Feel free to modify whatever's necessary to make a simulator build on
Windows.
