All this and the remaining removed text is unnecessary if you use
mingw32_shell.bat instead of msys2_shell.bat. There is no need to run
msys2_shell.bat at all unless you want to build MSYS2 packages (not to
be confused with MinGW-w64 packages, which doesn't depend on

BTW, the changes you proposed to MSYS2 intall/update procedure also
insists on running msys2_shell.bat. That's poor advice.
