Not that I know. mingw-w64's CRT is more complete (it includes LFS,
which mingw32 does not, for instance), includes more up-to-date
compilers and handles threading better.

Back then there were some concerns about mingw-w64 reverse
engineering/clean room practices, but they were not justified and have
been fully cleared.
