And now completely done.  Trunk revision 112606 allows to build Emacs
on Windows using the Posix configure script and Makefile's, under the
MSYS environment.

I'd like to encourage everyone who builds native Windows port of Emacs
to please switch to this method; the old nt/configure.bat and
Windows-specific makefile.w32-in files are from now on deprecated.
Start by reading nt/INSTALL.MSYS.

I would also like to thank everyone who provided comments to the
original patch: Stefan, Glenn, Paul, and to Ken Brown and others who
tried that on their systems.  Special thanks to Dani Moncayo, who
boldly applied my initial imperfect patch, and then patiently reported
every problem he discovered, until they all were resolved.
