The MinGW cruft was removed from osgeo4w (maybe still not complete, but
anyway).  I updated my package.sh accordingly (see ticket #1271).

For starters the mingw-libs package with the library copies (foo.lib =>
libfoo.a) are gone and package.sh now copies them before running configure.
That's probably what hits you here.
