Yes, that is the installer (and the version) I used to install my
current MinGW environment.

But the Emacs build process needs some utilities like "rm", "cp" or
"make" that aren't part of MinGW but MSYS (the are in the
"MinGW\msys\1.0\bin" directory).  So, I would have to borrow them from
another place (e.g. GnuWin).

Therefore, what I say is that it would be great if the version of
"make" that comes with MSYS didn't have the problem I (and you) said,
because then, we'd have a easy to use and monolithic environment to
build Emacs on Windows.
