Nevertheless, Juanma is right.  To be more precise, MSYS is a package
to build MinGW ports of software whose build needs to run the Posix
`configure' shell script and whose Makefiles require a Posix shell.

Emacs is not in that category, because it has a Windows configure.bat
script to configure it and Windows makefile.w32-in Makefiles that do
not require a Posix shell.
