Comment (by bugzilla):

 Replying to [comment:4 gk]:
 > mingw-w64 needs to get bumped to
 ace70f13c8bdcc9aa2a52b231e35d590df0a04e0 at least setting `MINGW_TAG` to
 it. I plan to do that using that commit while switching our nightlies to
 esr45. (#18700 is a duplicate)
 If nothing prevents you from using trunk version, please, use it. For GCC
 5.x too.
 > mingw-w64, preferably trunk version, is required
 About SDKs:
 June 2010 DirectX SDK (specifically) with End-User Redistributable
 is required for building the ANGLE GLES-on-D3D9 renderer for WebGL support
 on Windows.

 Very good reading about mingw-w64 toolchain update:
