Quoting Eli Zaretskii <address@hidden>:

So, in other words, my question is: why did Matt need MSYS to build a
Windows binary of his package?

Because it is nice to be able to build an application using the same techniques on every platform. MSYS is used to build many complex applications for the native windows with the native gcc and native binutils. It provides a common environment similar to UNIX platforms that can execute configure and make without the hassles of needing to use other tools.
