Hi Daniel,

This should work as we’re building Base with MSYS2 successfully on Travis CI.

Maybe you installed some extra package that is causing this? I’d try with a fresh MSYS2 installation and installing just the packages we install on CI:

Also make sure you’re building from a MinGW shell, not MSYS2.
