Thanks, that is interesting.

However, now I am able to run a pure msys compilation to produce a working
executable (thanks to Sergio on this list!). I missed this in the first
place, since I had to additionally load the msys core utils to make that
happen with both the library bfd and liberty residing in the msys lib

Thus it looks to me that
- msys has consistent libs bfd and liberty to compile on msys level
- liberty.a is missing in the MinGW lib folder
- a mixed compilation approach (msys & MinGW) uses incompatible libs, hence
linking breaks.
