    gnu: cross-base: Don't specify mingw --with-newlib
    Previous to this commit, we added a --with-newlib configure flag to
    cross-gcc when cross-newlib?, but cross-newlib? is true only when
    It turns out that specifying --with-newlib disables the
    GLIBCXX_CROSSCONFIG check, which is used to detect
    _GLIBCXX_HAVE__WFOPEN, which is required in C++17 std::filesystem for
    mingw-w64 systems.
    Additional context: In gnu/packages/embedded.scm, --with-newlib is
    specified explicitly when we're actually using newlib, which seems like
    the correct way of handling it.
    Situation in other distros:
    - Debian's gcc-mingw-w64 doesn't specify --with-newlib
    - Fedora's mingw64-gcc-c++ explicitly specifies --without-newlib
    Chesterton's fence: Chatting with janneke, who originally added this
    mechanism, reveals that this flag is not only no longer required, but
    also that removing it doesn't break his guile-mingw builds. See IRC logs
    of #guix for 2022-02-15.
    * gnu/packages/cross-base.scm (cross-gcc-arguments): Don't check for and
    specify --with-newlib.
    (cross-libc): Check for mingw and use mingw-w64 directly.
    (cross-newlib?): Remove, unexport.
    (native-libc): Remove.
