Note that this can't be done on Windows, only on UNIX.  Well, anyway,
I've never done it on Windows and I've never heard of anyone who has.
The tools required to build from the CVS archive (GNU m4, Perl, GNU
autoconf, GNU automake, and GNU gettext, at least) are easy to install
on UNIX systems but I don't know if they'll install properly on

There should be no particular problem to install all those tools on a
Windows machine, but in general, there's a need to install a ported
Bash as well.

There should be no problem running these commands, assuming (I cannot
check that where I'm typing this) that they don't use something that
Windows disallows, like file names with forbidden character.

I should give a try sometime with MSYS.  I don't know why it wouldn't work.
