Ah, great.  Thanks for working on this.

If you ever need a Windows port of Bash or some other Unixy shell,
there are a few non-MSYS, non-Cygwin ports floating around.  Although
they are generally quite old and sometimes buggy (and thus most of
them cannot run a reasonably elaborate configure script), they should
do fine for running typical commands one finds in Makefile's.
