No, for reasons I explained on the other patch, we should not do a full 
install of mingw-w64 headers overlaid on top of those that come from the 
toolchain. We should use the toolchain provided ones.

I'll look into the failure case you had with the way I'm packaging my 
toolchain for windows and see how to properly solve it (by making sure 
widl finds the idl files from the non-triplet-prefixed include directory).
