Hello Jason,

Sometimes ago, I managed to cross-compile and test PARI on MinGW on the pari host,
and I have report that it is possible to build PARI on MinGW using MSYS.

So I wonder: instead of fighting with, why not use MSYS to build pari with 
MSVC ? This should make the task significantly easier.
