What used to work was this:

In Cygwin:

cd to the libtool dir
git checkout master
./bootstrap --copy
mkdir ../cygwin
cd ../cygwin
make check

Then in MSYS:

cd to the libtool dir
mkdir ../mingw
cd ../mingw
make check

The above now misbehaves in the "make" step, with:

/bin/sh: line 13: git: command not found
/bin/sed -e s|@MACRO_VERSION\@||g -e 
s|@PACKAGE\@|libtool|g -e s|@PACKAGE_BUGREPORT\@|address@hidden|g -e

CDPATH="${ZSH_VERSION+.}:" && cd ../libtool && /bin/sh 
/c/Cygwin/home/peda/libtool/git/libtool/build-aux/missing --run autoconf
/bin/sh ./config.status --recheck

make should not trigger aclocal/automake/autoconf at this point, and some of 
the substitutions above are really bad as can also be seen below (look for 

cat ../libtool/m4/ltversion.m4

m4_define([LT_PACKAGE_VERSION], [])

_LT_DECL(, macro_version, 0, [Which release of libtool.m4 was used?])
_LT_DECL(, macro_revision, 0)

On a side note, I find it surprising that "./bootstrap --force --copy"
does not remove symlinks and copy the actual gnulib files over. I had
to remove the symlinks by hand, then "./bootstrap --copy". That took
a while to disentangle, as do all build system changes. Especially on
