I don't have MinGW or MSYS in the PATH, so they don't run from CMD.
Everything I run to build Emacs runs from the MSYS sh.exe with a path
than includes MinGW\bin and MSYS\1.0\bin, and C:\devel\emacs\build\bin
(which has many EZWinports tools).

(mdo = "c:\bin\MinGW\msys\1.0\bin\sh.exe --login -i")

  C:\> mdo pkg-config --version

No to both.

  C:\> mdo m4 --version
  m4 (GNU M4) 1.4.16

It fails with

  configure.ac:70: error: possibly undefined macro: AS_ECHO
      If this token and others are legitimate, please use m4_pattern_allow.
      See the Autoconf documentation.
  configure.ac:1352: error: possibly undefined macro: PKG_PROG_PKG_CONFIG
  configure.ac:1355: error: possibly undefined macro: PKG_CHECK_MODULES

That hints at a problem, indeed. I seem to have two autoreconf
installed: 2.65, from EZWinports, in my C:\devel\build\bin directory,
and 2.68 in MinGW/bin.
