Turns out that building libntdll.a and friends from mingw-w64 also
requires the cygwin headers to be installed.
So this patch is still necessary for configure-target-winsup to
succeed, as it currently requires libntdll.a to exist.
So even if the libstdc++v3 dependency is removed, we still have
mingw-crt depends on cygwin-headers
and cygwin-headers depends on mingw-crt in the current state.
