The last one is not a replacement for the other two: it's just a
``solution'' to have a port of Bash and a minimal set of related
tools; AFAIK, Make and makeinfo are not part of that set.  GnuWin32
and Cygwin are much larger sets of tools.  In addition, GnuWin32
doesn't include GCC and Binutils, and MinGW has _only_ those.

So I think the right combinations are: GnuWin32+MinGW and Cygwin.  The
former can be augmented by some port of a Unix shell (I use zsh,
FWIW), while the latter comes with a shell.

The port of sh included in MSYS is the Cygwin port.  So I won't
recommend its use with a non-Cygwin build of Emacs.
