    multiple definition of `getopt_long_only'
    ./.libs/libkpathsea.dll.a(d000021.o):(.text+0x0): first defined here

I haven't tried it, but looking at getopt1.c and getopt.c, if you
recompile those files with -DELIDE_CODE (or edit the sources to #define
that symbol), all the actual code should be omitted.  Of course, let's
hope that the mingw getopt is compatible enough that things don't blow
up when the programs try to parse their options.

Shared kpathsea is not supported and not (by me) recommended.

Hope this helps,
