Yes building with mingw and msys does indeed work, however mingw doesn't allow for a configure script, hence the configure.bat file in the nt directory. My interest was in compiling with the cygwin suite such that the nt source can be better merged with the rest, by using a configure script etc

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).
