Progress report:

I have spent way too much time on this and don't have it working yet.
I'm setting up a sacrificial VM from scratch in a last ditch attempt to
get it working.

Things to note so far:

* VS2015 appears to create version 12 solution files, not version 14,
and the tools complained about version 14.
* Windows git (the successor to msysGit) apparently no longer ships
with bison and flex. So if you need those (i.e. to built from git,
not tarball) you're probably going to need to install the MsysDTK
even if you're not using its compiler.
