I think the problem is here:

  EMACSLOADPATH=g:/emacs/trunk/lisp LC_ALL=C /g/emacs/build/src/emacs -batch 
--no-site-file --no-site-lisp -l autoload \
     --eval "(setq generate-autoload-cookie \";;;###cal-autoload\")" \
     --eval "(setq generated-autoload-file (unmsys--file-name 
\"g:/emacs/trunk/lisp/calendar/cal-loaddefs.el\"))" \
                                                               ^^^^

How come you get here "d:/foo/bar" style of file names, and not MSYS's
usual "/d/foo/bar"?  Did you per chance invoke the configure script as
"g:/emacs/trunk/nt/msysconfig ..."?  If so, try "/g/emacs/..."
instead.

I think what happens in the above command is that MSYS converts

  g:/emacs/trunk/lisp/calendar/cal-loaddefs.el

into

  g;\emacs\trunk\lisp\calendar\cal-loaddefs.el

(note the semi-colon and the backslashes), because it thinks this is a
colon-separated path.  That's why Emacs complains about invalid escape
sequences.  Can you add a 'message' to unmsys--file-name to see what
kind of argument it is called with?
