I agree. I did quite a lot of testing before writing the suggestions for this. I had to change my mind some times. (I struggled hard to get MSYS working for building Emacs but finally gave it up.)

When I was doing this I also looked into the tools for the run time environment for Emacs on w32. I think that should be considered too when writing instructions for setting up a building environment. Doing so is a bit frustrating, but maybe also tells us what should be changed in Emacs to make things easier on w32.
