stg_upd_frame_info still broken

I still cannot build GHC on Windows.  On Ben's advice I dumped my current msys setup and re-installed msys64 as described here
I cloned an entirely new GHC repository.
Then 'sh validate'.
Same result as before: any attempt to run GHCi fails with an unresolved symbol.

bash$ c:/code/HEAD-1/inplace/bin/ghc-stage2 --interactive

GHCi, version 7.11.20151026:  :? for help

ghc-stage2.exe: unable to load package `ghc-prim-'

ghc-stage2.exe: C:\code\HEAD-1\libraries\ghc-prim\dist-install\build\HSghc-prim- unknown symbol `_stg_upd_frame_info'

How could I actually find what the problem is?   Trying random things and hoping the problem goes away clearly is not working.
Very stuck and deeply frustrated
