Could you please help me understand what could be the problem with my setup?

I didn't dig deep into that issue, but I would assume that the problem is Windows and MSYS. If you configure/build in the same way as launchpad toolchain is built (check their scripts in the "...-src" package), then there's no other option.

I also compile newlib (lates master) myself in a similar way as launchpad guys do (my compilation is here - , scripts are also included), but I'm doing that on Linux and it "just works"... Trying to build any "typical" project on Windows is just too much trouble - it's easier and faster to install any Linux distro directly on your machine or using VirtualBox.

Yes, this is also my experience. Building GCC on Windows is a waste of time. Its much faster and reliable to Canadian Cross compile on Linux. Most distributions provide MinGW cross-compiler packages, e.g. for openSUSE
