Maybe this change caused Cesar's troubles:

----------  msysCORE-1.0.13-1 -- 2010 Jan 15 -----------
* Developer files are moved from within /usr/i686-pc-msys to
   /usr/include and /usr/lib.

Cesar, if still have your old installation around, please try removing 
the old i686-pc-msys directory. Otherwise, reinstalling is maybe the 
easiest route.
