[Help-smalltalk] Build 3.0 on mingw/msys

I am attempting to build GNU Smalltalk 3.0 using MSYS shell and mingw 
I have overcome the error reported elsewhere requiring 
lib-src/ to be added to two lines in Makefile:
 gst_tool_LDADD and  gst_tool_DEPENDENCIES

But am now getting a failure when running gst-tool gst-package:
./gst-tool gst-package --kernel-dir="/c/dev/mingw/smalltalk-3.0/kernel" 
--image="/c/dev/mingw/smalltalk-3.0/" --srcdir=. 
--target-directory=. packages/browser/package.xml
mkdir "C:\DOCUME~1\paulb\LOCALS~1\Temp\gstar-DOSSUZ"
mkdir "C:\DOCUME~1\paulb\LOCALS~1\Temp\gstar-DOSSUZ\Browser"
cp -p -f "c:\dev\mingw\smalltalk-3.0\packages\browser\" 
gst-package: Operation not permitted

The problem is that msys shell does not recognise the DOS-style target 
path in the 'cp' command: the path needs to be in quotes as the source 
path is.  I cannot find where the source for this command is.

PS Are there any instructions for a build on msys/mingw?
