Ideally the release should launch complete with the relevant binaries
or else old 1.2.1 users will not get the message when news posts hit.
Fortunately, if someone from Xiph wants to take up the call, it is
straightforward to set up both i686 and x86_64 flavors of MinGW-w64.

32-bit target: http://sourceforge.net/projects/mingw-w64/files/Toolchains%20targetting%20Win32/Personal%20Builds/mingw-builds/4.9.2/threads-posix/dwarf/
64-bit target: http://sourceforge.net/projects/mingw-w64/files/Toolchains%20targetting%20Win64/Personal%20Builds/mingw-builds/4.9.2/threads-posix/seh/

One extracted, it's just a matter of temporarily adding the relevant
bin folder to PATH. When libogg is built, it will also be necessary to
manually move its headers and libs into the include and lib folders.
