I wrestled with it for about a week before finally giving up. The
msys-target compiler is gcc-2.95.3, and that coupled with the ancient
vintage cygwin on which msys is based means that newer perl just doesn't
build.  Sorry.

I suggest using installing cygwin, and using its (much more modern)
tools to manage your SVN repo.
