Not sure how that works.  You'll need libguestfs-winsupport to access
Windows guests, and that will be the case in RHEL 7.2 upwards.

On RHEL/CentOS, yes.

The echo command is saying "add libguestfs-winsupport to the
appliance", but supermin ignores packages which are not installed, so
if libguestfs-winsupport isn't installed that command will be ignored.
Whether or not you installed ntfs-3g on the host is irrelevant.

Anyway, I suggest installing libguestfs-winsupport-7.2 (although if
you have previously force-installed packages or overwritten random
distro files then all bets are off).

This might work, but I didn't test it:

  echo ntfs-3g > /usr/lib64/guestfs/supermin.d/local-ntfs-3g
