I had a config equivalent to this (slight difference in PATH, but the same gcc
being picked), and I just verified that it still works if I set up PATH like
that. I get a working plperl out of it. Without msys on PATH or such.
dumpbin /imports 'C:/Users/anfreund/src/pg-meson/build-mingw/tmp_install/lib/plperl.dll'|grep dll
Dump of file C:\Users\anfreund\src\pg-meson\build-mingw\tmp_install\lib\plperl.dll
dumpbin /imports .\build-mingw\tmp_install\bin\postgres.exe|grep dll
do $$elog(NOTICE, "blob");$$ language plperl;
To me this looks like it's a plperl built without the import file recreation,
without being msys dependent?

I don't see pexports anywhere in the msys installation. I can see it available
on sourceforge, and I see a few others asking where to get it from in the
context of msys, and being pointed to manually downloading it.
Seems like we should consider using gendef instead of pexports, given it's
available in msys?
$ pacman -Fy
$ pacman -F gendef.exe

$ pacman -F pexports.exe
$ pacman -Fx pexports
