Almost whole patch is wrong (should use MSYS2), out of scope for FFmpeg, and
uses the wrong title (we *do not* want MinGW here at all).

It duplicates existing documention poorly or misleadingly (at worse, wrongly),
but as a tutorial, instead of documentation. It also copy/pastes the same stuff
for different archs. It also seems to include hacks which should not be needed.

If this belongs anywhere, it belongs on the wiki.

NAK from me, and I am pretty sure the other MSVC/Windows support authors agree.
