(Presumably this last was a copy-and-pasting typo.)

Unless there's some obscure reason, not obvious from scanning configure,
why the MinGW Makefile wouldn't contain the relevant targets: you want
'make installlib' to install the libraries and headers. (Does the other
way, under "test 1", actually install both libraries and headers? I
wouldn't expect so from looking at configure. If it does, then the
effect is probably derived from a definitional difference between
"shared" and "static".)

I'm not really in a position to even attempt to investigate the other

side of it.
