1. The functions lacking in libc.scm on msys2 are the following:
gethostent, setnetent, endnetent, getnetent, getnetbyname, getnetbyaddr

MINGW64 is different from MSYS2, yes. MSYS2 have more functions
available for one, I guess. For example, MSYS2 has `realpath',
but MINGW64 does not have. In order to compile s7 under MINGW64,
one needs to write a lot of extra code.
It would be nice of course to compile s7 on MINGW64. It will
take a lot of your energy. As a selfish user, I would suggest
working on other aspects first.
