https://sourceforge.net/projects/mingw-w64/files/3rd%20party%20development%20tools/ contains autotools builds, but these require a threaded perl. Recommended MSYS packages contain a perl without thread support. I'm not sure how to proceed with getting the autotools package above to work...

    Those are mainly for Cygwin, and only for convenience. It should work on Linux too. The only non-threaded Perl that is still in use is from MSYS, the download contains the sources already, so you can install it yourself manually.
