I've tried 10.4 and it works. Now time for next level of confusion - your patch touches bootstrap.sh but
I don't really know how to execute it. Running it directly as "bootstrap.sh" obviously does not work,
and I don't see any "sh" binary for "sh bootstrap.sh" to work. I notice that bootstrap.bat does not
work either, even though I though it should pick mingw from PATH.
So - what ways of using mingw do we want to have supported?
