I think the message about Getopt.pm is bogus: the Automake package
from ezwinports does include that file.  Please verify that you do
have it.

I think the problem is with pkg.m4, which comes with the pkg-config
package (see the message above).  My crystal ball says that you do
have that file, but in the wrong place: since your pkg-config is a
MinGW port, you have that file in share/aclocal under the MinGW root,
but not under the MSYS root.

In general, I suggest to make sure your *.m4 files are always
duplicated in both trees, because you can never know which script will
need it and where will they look for them.
