For the record, you don't need MSYS to build or run a MinGW build of Emacs.

Yes, I was researching yesterday and it turns out I was wrong. The content of http://mingw.org/wiki/MSYS states that MSYS is _not_ the subsystem, as I erroneously assumed it was. I thought MinGW
```was a collection of compilers which targeted the MSYS runtime. The
content of http://mingw.org/wiki/MinGW claims that its compilers
target the Microsoft runtimes.

```
Having said that, learning this just makes me _more_ confused. Now I wonder if perhaps the mingw-gcc outputs are somehow not using the Microsoft runtimes "correctly", leading to some kind of initialization delay. [yes, I know this has really digressed into a MinGW discussion, and for that I am sorry]

I want very much to use Microsoft's compilers to build Emacs, in order
to find out what's wrong. However, for right now I don't have the
intellectual bandwidth to chase that.

Sorry for the confusion,
