This is OK.

No, this is already wrong: the source directory should be something
like /c/msys/home/dani/emacs/emacs.git, i.e. the full Windows file
name in MSYS format.  Something is still not working correctly.

Are you sure you restored the MSYS tools correctly?  E.g., do you have
dirname.exe and sed.exe in C:/MSYS/bin, and are those MSYS
executables?  Also, which version of MSYS Bash do you have?

The configure script computes the source directory in a fragment that
starts with this comment:

  # Find the source files, if location was not specified.

Perhaps add 'echo' there in strategical places to see what is not
working, and why.
