Give the lateness in the release cycle, I'd feel a lot better about this if
other Windows packagers weighed in.

We discovered this issue at Mozilla as part of trying to make Firefox build
with msys2 rather than our hacked together msys1-based environment (which
contains the official Windows Python distribution instead of the msys one).
With this patch, `pip install Mercurial` "just works" under msys2/MinGW and
doesn't produce a useless hg.exe.
