Or with pexports, which reveals identically the same defect for not only
the crossed-native build, but also for the cross-compiler build itself:

  $ pexports ~/mingw32/mingw32/lib/libvtv-0.dll
  LIBRARY libvtv-0.dll

  $ pexports ~/mingw32/mingw32/lib/libvtv_stubs-0.dll
  LIBRARY libvtv_stubs-0.dll

from which, I guess, we must conclude that this feature is broken on
Windows, so...

it would seem to be pointless even to try to enable support for the
feature, or to distribute the resultant (broken) DLLs.

OTOH, libatomic-1.dll does exhibit exports:

  $ pexports ~/mingw32/mingw32/lib/libatomic-1.dll
  LIBRARY libatomic-1.dll

so I will include it, when I update the package set.
