Use of FMOD on MSYS2

I need to use FMOD on MSYS2, but there does not appear to be a FMOD.a. I’ve attempted using tools provided by MSYS2 to convert the .lib and .dll files into .a and .so files, but that did not work.
How do you use FMOD on MSYS2?

What version of FMOD are you using, and what specific errors are you running into?

As far as I’m aware, while you’ll need to use the C API, for 64 bit you should be able link the dlls directly. For 32 bit, we provide .a import libraries for each corresponding 32 bit dll. Please see the Libraries section of our Windows platform-specific docs for more info.
