I thought you said the MSYS port is not of importance, and should not
be supported by the official distro, since you want the MinGW
developers to use the MinGW port (which now builds without any need
for the MSYS shell and the other development tools).  Did I miss

If you do want the MSYS port to be part of the official distro, then
the HAVE_DOS_PATHS gork needs similar treatment for MSYS; as you
remember, last time I tried to remote-debug the related problems, I
couldn't get them ready in time for the 3.81 release, so the last
patch I suggested is not in the sources.  Someone should pick up where
I left off.
