Aren't you describing the issue you as user have to solve to be able to compile FFmpeg with msys or do I misunderstand?

I followed the guide on the site and I am having problems build the system.
I thought someone else might have encountered the same issue so I posted here.

Isn’t it sufficient to mv /usr/bin/link /usr/bin/link.bak?
Personally, I strongly recommend to use wsl to build native Windows binaries.

Thats why we have compat/windows/mslink in the tree, which gets automatically used when you specify --toolchain=msvc. Not sure what guide you are following, but using --toolchain instead of overriding CC/LD manually is quite recommended.

I followed this guide:
https://trac.ffmpeg.org/wiki/CompilationGuide/WinRT

When I invoke the configure command I get the error: unknown option "--toolchain=msvc".
