I used MinGW/MSYS. But it was quite time consuming finding correct
versions of the different libraries, then getting CMake to find said
libraries and in the end the resulting Hatari binary didn't even work.
See this e-mail related to the last problem:

To be fair, all my efforts were over a year ago, maybe the situation has
improved in the meantime. But right now, if I want to test a current
build, I rely on

I'm afraid I'm also not 100% sure which scancodes are produced by US PC
keyboards -- they differ from the rest of the world, as you already
pointed out. Unfortunately, I don't have a US keyboard to test, either.
