These are all rpmlint warnings/errors that we'd normally ignore.
I'll explain here why:

script-without-shebang [...] libpixman-1.la
 - We use *.la files when linking.  This is explicitly allowed in
   the MinGW guidelines that were passed.

 - All MinGW packages are for development only, so when we passed
   the guidelines we didn't opt to have a separate -devel subpackage.
   See bug 468987 for why this warning isn't suppressed.

 - See https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=467397#c4

 - See bug 468989.

non-standard-dir-in-usr i686-pc-mingw32
 - This breaks the FHS, but is permitted by the MinGW guidelines.
