thanks everyone for your advices.

i made 2 major mistakes:

1. i thought it's possible to use /src in Miller's download for Windows.
2. using MSYS2 instead of MSYS2 MINGw32.

in both cases one has to provide additional tools and/or the correct 
path to them in the Windows system.
therefore the "cl.exe not found".
MINGW32 has them included.

so, with the sources from github i succeeded to make the app.

the verbosity of the output of the whole proces is quite overwhelming 
for someone like me.
there were a number of warnings:
e.g.: "remember to run 'libtool --finish /..../bob~
or: "assignment from incompatible pointer"

is it necessary to do something with them?

great, you saved me the efforts to find out what to use on XP (MSYS2 
doesn't work anymore on XP).
