[tz] Building tzcode on Windows / MinGW

With the recent contributions to tzcode, I understand that building under MinGW should now be possible. However, I've gone through all the docs I could find on various ways to set up an environment for this, and despite my best efforts and several hours of frustration, I could not get a successful build.
It would be greatly appreciated if someone could either respond with a quick "how to", or post a blog or something explaining the minimal setup needed to make this work. Which distribution do I download (MinGW, MinGW-w64), what environment do I need (cygwin, msys, bare windows), what minimal toolchain or cygwin packages, or msys packages, etc do I need? Do I need "Win-builds" (win-build.org)?
Also, is compiling under Visual Studio possible?
At the end of the day, I want a zic.exe that I can run against a specific set of tzdata source files, and a zdump.exe I can run on the binary output of zic. I'd like to be able to run both on Windows without having to have anything special on the machine at runtime.
