A gawk user recently called my attention to:

The patch file there is named gawk-4.2.1-msysize.patch.  The patches mainly
seem to add an "msys*" option in several build scripts just after the
"cygwin*" system identity alternatives.

I have adapted the patches for gawk's test/ and will be
pushing shortly.

Can we get the changes for compile, config.guess, config.rpath, and
ar-lib integrated directly into GNULIB, so that I can then pull them
from upstream?

I installed most of those changes to Gnulib. The exception is the proposed change to config.guess, which is upstream from Gnulib and is part of GNU config, so I'll CC: this message to address@hidden.

As far as I can see, the proposed config.guess change has no effect, as the existing config.guess treats MSYS the same on all architectures in an earlier branch of that big 'case' statement. config.guess has done so since this commit in 2014, which specifically caused config.guess to treat MSYS the same on all machines, not just i* machines:

so I'm puzzled as to why the config.guess change would be needed even if it were effective.
