msys2 Symantec oddness for your amusement

Installing msys2 on a 32bit W7 machine today.  Check this out:

cat >helloworld.c <<'EOD'
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <stdio.h>
void main(void){
printf("Hello World!\n");
gcc -o helloworld helloworld.c
Hello World
ldd ./helloworld
         ntdll.dll => /c/Windows/SYSTEM32/ntdll.dll (0x77740000)
         kernel32.dll => /c/Windows/system32/kernel32.dll (0x778b0000)
         KERNELBASE.dll => /c/Windows/system32/KERNELBASE.dll
         SYSFER.DLL => /c/Windows/System32/SYSFER.DLL (0x754b0000)
         UMEngx86.dll => /c/ProgramData/Symantec/Symantec Endpoint
         msvcrt.dll => /c/Windows/system32/msvcrt.dll (0x76af0000)

Hopefully that is just what it looks like in msys2 and not a real
dependency for the Symantec dll in the resulting program!  I cannot
really tell right now because all the PCs near me have the same Symantec
program on them, so they have that dll.

msys2 is a lot more like Cygwin than mingw2.  The latter was a really
light development platform, msys2 has everything including the kitchen
