You don't need MSYS to build FluidSynth using CMake in Windows. MSYS was 
needed only to run "configure" and other auto-tools programs and scripts. I 
don't use it, so I can't provide any advice other than removing it to save 
disk space and headaches.

MinGW provides the compilers, utils, and a gnumake port: a program named 
"mingw32-make.exe" that behaves a bit different than the make command provided 
by MSYS. You need to instruct CMake to generate the correct Makefiles, either  
with the command line interface using the parameter "-G" (generator), or in a 
much simpler way running the GUI interface (cmake-gui). The first time you 
press the "configure" button, or after removing the cache, it asks for the 
output type.

Don't forget to read the FluidSynth Wiki:
