MSYS2's mingw64 environment requires the MING prefix to be empty
due to some programs (like windres) not having a prefix.
gcc and $(MING)gcc are aliases in that environment.
(MSYS2 is basically Cygwin but with pacman.)
Cygwin's unprefixed gcc targets its posix emulation dll,
so you'd always want to use the prefix to cross-compile.
It might also be missing parts of the win32 api.
Different gccs can have different default include directories.
It's confusing.
