MSYS does many evil things. MSYS make also searches for suitable
sh, I think. I can't follow anymore, there are too many MSYS-related
options and setups.

So, the situation is:

- mingw-msys: you have mingw + msys
- mingw: you *DON'T* have msys, just cmd.exe and bare bones mingw
- msvc: *NO* mingw/msys, just GNU make and MSVC and cmd.exe

Everything else is not supported. Have a nice day.

Oh boy - another combination of configuration options.

Sure, try it out!
