In fact, this is a good question. I'm not really that knowledgable about MinGW but it seems that there are three shells you might want to use: cygwin, mingw and the normal windows shell. I built chicken with MSYS with uses forward slashes (although it horribly [or nicely depending on your point of view!] mangles the rest of the windows path, e.g. c:\chicken becomes /c/chicken). This being the case, I should presumably not apply the patch and install all the extensions I want from MSYS. I'll try that.

Thanks,

Ian
