Ok, this one builds pythonXY, so it tries to be compatible with the
official distribution (although it seems to link against MSVCRT.dll)

That's *not* a port of Python to MingW. Instead, it is a set of
instructions on how to build Python extension modules, using the
official Python binaries, with mingw. I think this is obsolete now,
as this now ships with Python itself.

This doesn't seem to be distributing binaries.
