This advice basically boils down to "you need to already have it in
order to build it", which isn't really the most useful advice unless
you're using the official repos...

Looking at the AUR, mingw-w64-harfbuzz depends on mingw-w64-freetype2
which is also provided by mingw-w64-freetype2-minimal,
mingw-w64-freetype2-bootstrap. I'm not sure why both variant packages
exist, but the -bootstrap variant is pretty obviously meant to do
exactly this.
