Applications compiled for MSYS should be considered as part of MSYS 
itself; only those who participate in MSYS development should ever 
need to create such applications.

This is as far as the vast majority of users should ever need to go.

This step is only necessary for those who would like to participate in 
the project, as developers of MSYS itself; if you find yourself using 
the MSYS System Builder tools for any other purpose, then you should 
seriously consider using Cygwin instead.  The MSYS System Builder is 
not intended for such use; we do not tout it as an alternative to 
Cygwin, (from which it is derived anyway, but it is a derivative of 
an ancient Cygwin version).
