I suspect that if you run the configure script with the Cygwin shell,
PATH_SEPARATOR_CHAR will be set for Cygwin.

This is true: I have found no MinGW-specific settings in the configure
script.  It only detects PATH_SEPARATOR_CHAR from the environment.  So
I guess both Cygwin and MSYS will cause the auto-detected path
separator to be ":".  It has to be manually changed currently.

It should be set based on the specified --host. If it isn't set correctly then a patch to autoconf is due. I'll put in on my round tuit to take a look.
