Do you use MSYS on Windows to build Emacs?

Sorry, I don't understand this.  What does it mean ``never happens
after I know it''?  Please explain.

It matters.  I'd like to try to find a solution, but I need to know
the details first.  If you can reproduce this problem at will, please
send the complete transcript of a failed bootstrap.  The commands to
produce such a transcript are like this:

        cd nt
        configure 2>&1 | tee transcript.txt
        make bootstrap 2>&1 | tee -a transcript.txt

(You will need a port of the `tee' command.)  Then post the file
transcript.txt created by these commands.
