This is very useful work, because mingw64 currently can't be used to
build LuaJIT due to exception handling shortcomings. But depending on
the damn MS compiler-specific run-times leads to a world of hurt,
apart from having to redistribute them to your end users.   When LfW
moves away from the MSVC2005 run-time, it will definitely not be
moving to the MSVC2010 run-time!

(I know people can get a little overexcited on depending on
proprietary compilers, but whatever works...)
