I still cant find where my setting for LIB as seen under mingw comes 
from. I found some shell init scripts on my linux side, and some .bat on 
my PC, that do set LIB=, but not at that value.

All I can say is, that if I remove LIB from my msys environment manu 
militari, I can build the shared libs on mingw. I dont have plans to try 
static nor install.
