[vlc-devel] Cannot compile from git

I'm trying to compile from the latest code in Git. When I get to the point where I try and compile the extras, I get the following error:

checking for x86_64-w64-mingw32-gcc... x86_64-w64-mingw32-gcc
...checking whether the C compiler works... no
configure: error: in `/build/vlc/contrib/win64/jpeg':
configure: error: C compiler cannot create executables
See `config.log' for more details
...../../contrib/src/jpeg/rules.mak:18: recipe for target '.jpeg' failed

I believe that I've followed the compile recipe but it still won't compile. Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?
