Strange I have them in both folders and have had many flawless builds., 
so far. Mine are from 23-Sep-2009, so they have been there for a while.

I have renamed them in the MinGW folder to test if I could do a 
succesfull make install in the mythgallery folder but it errors out with 
the same error as you have seen, so they seem needed AFAIK.

This has recently also been discussed in this thread:

No that is not the root cause. The build script errors out early as a 
linking fails for mythgallery (the first plugin to be installed into the 
build directory). Therefore it never installs mythmovies into the build 
folder and subsequently fails to compare against the mythmovies.dll in 
the build folder as it does not exist... so the linker error is the root 
cause of your issue.

Kind regards,
