Msys2 and mingw-w64 (on windows) are a great way to build for windows (see 
the list archive for a -recent- discussion of this). Have you also read the 
wiki page about it (https://trac.ffmpeg.org/wiki/CompilationGuide)?

Getting the dependencies on windowz w/ mingw is no harder than getting the 
-same- dependencies for cross-compiling.

Do you have the linux package or the windows cross-compile package 
installed?  The former won't help with building win-64 executables.

There is if you need to run on windoze, which many people do.
