We use --disable-xmlsec for mingw builds too (it most probably means
libxmlsec does not cross-compile with mingw ATM; I do not remember).

What is the exact problem here? Note that the uuidgen binary from
util-linux is not the one to use. There is another one (at least in
Fedora) called uuid (from package uuid), that seems to be
command-line-option-compatible with the Windows' uuidgen.exe . There is
even a check for it in configure, but it only issues warning if it is
not found (if we are going to always generate the MSI, it should be
changed to error).
