Everything gets output to store/pkg. The job of the msysrls.sh script is
to take the important bits and discard the rest, creating a binary
package of the result.

The files in store/var contain the list of files to be copied, and the
noarch directory contain some extra files to be copied as well. The
selected files are assembled in depot/binary/msysCORE/1.0, forming the
directory tree of MSYS. This directory is then packed into a binary
tarball which is ready to be distributed.
