 I hope that Rainer answers, I can only tell you why
 `x86_64-w64-mingw32-gcc` is so much different from the others.

 If you look at #40174, you'll notice that it took us some 2.5-3.5 years to
 even figure out how to build & package it (and that's after we already had
 a functional albeit abandoned `i386-mingw32` port), and we still don't
 even have the dependencies sorted out correctly (they are still cyclic
 after all these years).

 I have no clue how to properly test some random `arch-platform-gcc` short
 of having some special hardware available, but I really needed to build
 some binaries for Windows that would eventually run on the same machine
 (MacBook) where I built them. And if things didn't work, I had to keep

 At least the MinGW-w64 cross-compiler requires a bunch of special Windows
 libraries that come from special packages, and there's a separate project
 devoted just to that. Lots of other boards need special support files to

 It might make sense to check how other distributions are addressing the
