I think more than 1 job with make now works on a recent MSYS2. To be
honest I cannot remember if it is working. For a long time MSYS
(MinGW32) had problems.

Yes but indirectly. For example
You could add __ln_s to windows.py as 'cp' to see if it works. I seem to
remember from the distance past that MSYS basically did a copy rather
than create an unsupported link.
Also the RSB cannot control the contents of a tar file is expands and a
tar file can contain a symlink. The same goes for a build system
contained in a package.
