I think it's a good idea to do the same for MinGW, because it's the
runtime C library that really defines the platform, whereas one could
potentially use clang on mingw (with or without msys) too.

Attached patch extends this idea for mingw, and adds a NEWS entry.

PS: What about mingw64?  Should we define that as a separate software
version?  Or maybe just rename it to "mingw" for both?
