I use a 64-bit Windows 7 SP1 (6.1.7601) with both the 32-bit (i686)
and 64-bit (x86_64) msys2 installed on a regular NTFS partition.  The
i686 instance is of July 4, 2014, and the x86_64 instance is of
February 16, 2014.  I have GHC 7.6.3 and GCC 4.5.2 (32-bit) and GCC
4.6.3 (64-bit) installed, respectively.
