  Add a required version for mingw. The version is selected is
the version available for Debian oldstable (Bullseye) as listed on:

The 10.0 version was released in 4/4/2022,
The current upstream version 11.0.

Also drop note about Ubuntu 16.04 because that release is EOL
and the if using a current version of Ubuntu, the package will
not be a problem.
