Yes, it works fine for me too; I cannot reproduce the OP's problem, with
a conventional `./configure && make'; I see only one warning, repeated
several times for glob.c, passing an incompatible pointer type for arg 0
to my_realloc, at line 197.

Running the testsuite does throw up a number of reported failures.
Examining the diff files suggests that quite a few of these are due
to POSIX style path names appearing in the reference files, where the
equivalent Win32 native path names appear in the test logs, so the
failure reports may be spurious; several others are related to features,
e.g. symlinks, which I would expect to fail in any case.

OTOH, does not achieve a successful build under MSYS -- it
quickly runs through compilation of ar.c and arscan.c, but then craps
out with a "No such file or directory" error for w32err.h, while
attempting to compile commands.c
