My mistake: gnucash uses MinGW-w64.

The gnucash lead developer has a few patches to successfully compile guile
on MinGW-w64. It would be great if these patches were taken upstream and a
CI pipeline enabled for testing. Otherwise gnucash for windows will always
need to catch up, and is at severe risk of falling behind.

Yeah, that's a patched version of 2.2.7.

Even though I'm on a hiatus from coding, I believe I have all the
parts to make Guile 3.0.x work on MinGW 32-bit no-threads.  Maybe I'll
just see if I can't put that together real quick.
