As far as my understanding goes, ntemacs currently can't be built using the
cygwin tools because the cygwin version of make produces cygwin style paths,
which means that a make bootstrap will fail as the dumped emacs expects
windows style paths (I'm not 100 percent sure this is the reason - please
correct me if 'm wrong). It occured to me that by using the cygpath utility
included with the cygwin suite, which converts to and from windows paths,
this problem is dealable with - see
for more info. This would then allow a better integration with the emacs
distribution, since now a conventional configure script could be used for
generating the makefile etc. Before I actually looked into this, I though
I'd post this message to make sure I understand the problem correctly :)

I thought that is was possible to build ntemacs using mingw and msys?

Msys is a minium version of Cygwin designed for the purpose
of running configure to produce windows executables.

mingw is a version of gcc that produces windows executeables
(without any dependance on cygwin).
