Automake or Autoconf when you run 'autoreconf'. How about removing
the MinGW bin/ directory from PATH and watching for any error
messages? Any MinGW program (as opposed to MSYS program) that gets
run by 'autoreconf' is a possible suspect; install its MSYS namesake
and see if the problem goes away.

installation. I've been configuring and building Unix and GNU
packages with it for more than a year.
I see ^M characters here and there in your autom4te.cache/output.0 and

in autom4te.cache/traces.0 files. In fact, one such place in traces.0
is exactly at the locus of your problem:
m4trace:configure.ac:512: -1- AC_CONFIG_FILES([Makefile glob/Makefile po/Makefile.in config/Makefile \^M
There are no such ^M characters in the corresponding files I have on
m4trace:configure.ac:512: -1- AC_CONFIG_FILES([Makefile glob/Makefile po/Makefile.in config/Makefile \
So it definitely looks like some program invoked in the process is a
MinGW (or otherwise native Windows) program, not an MSYS program.
Find it and install the corresponding MSYS package, and the problem
will most probably go away. Or maybe you should just re-arrange your
PATH so that MSYS's bin directory comes earlier.
