I did get the same thing at one point.

This was the cause of the problem for me.

Add this:

diff --git a/nt/mingw-cfg.site b/nt/mingw-cfg.site
index 05034fe..0063c2b 100644
--- a/nt/mingw-cfg.site
+++ b/nt/mingw-cfg.site
@@ -40,6 +40,12 @@ gl_cv_sys_struct_timespec_in_pthread_h=no
 # Or at all...

+# We don't want to check for these functions
+# because they are implemented in libwinpthread.
+ac_cv_search_clock_gettime="none required"
 # ACL functions are implemented in w32.c
 ac_cv_search_acl_get_file="none required"

And the dependency towards libwinpthread is gone for MinGW64.
