Supporting MinGW would allow a number of Qt/GPL applications to use
Subversion libraries on Windows. This could be very helpful for
cross-platform Subversion clients.

I've been working on getting a build environment set up for Subversion
and have been running into a number of problems with some of its
dependencies. The barrier to entry on projects using Subversion is a lot
higher if developers need to compiler their own MinGW versions of the
libraries. Is there any chance a development release package could be
created with these libraries?
