OK, I'm starting over with a fresh Ubuntu install and following the 
documentation for compiling VLC on Windows to the tee.

When I get to the configure stage, I get the error:

configure: error: LibVLC requires mingw-runtime version 3.15 or higher, 
or mingw-w64 version 3.0 or higher!

I assume I need to apt-get install mingw-w63 since I am building for 
Windows 64. Correct?
