You have to forgive me for not guessing that.  My memory of 17 year old
patches are a bit dim.

And considering that amd64 did not exist at the time of that patch, it
is not strange that it wasn't applied to the equally non-existing
mpn/x86_64 directory.

  I sent copied the necessary parts of that to the x86_64 path.

OK, I'll take a look.

  I think they are no longer using sourceforge, and are on github.  They are also on

You guess better than me.  Yes, I indeed mailed to the msys2 sourceforge

And they set up the mailing list to silently drop (as opposed to at last
bounce or ideally forward) incoming mail?  Unimpressive.
