I am probably missing something, but from a message posted previously
in this thread [1] I find this:

>Invocation command line was
> $ ./configure --without-zlib --host=x86_64-w64-mingw32 --prefix=D:/psqlbin

And the following snippets in config.log:

>configure:6164: checking for x86_64-w64-mingw32-ar
>configure:6180: found /mingw/bin/x86_64-w64-mingw32-ar
>configure:6191: result: x86_64-w64-mingw32-ar

this when listing cache variables:


and this when listing output variables:


Exactly how is x86_64-w64-mingw32-ar the wrong ar?
Or is plain 'ar' used somewhere instead of 'x86_64-w64-mingw32-ar'?
