Nothing.  The issue is, we haven't yet published the "manifests" for all
of the available packages.  See:


We're working on it, but it's slow going.  As it happens, I just
published the manifests for perl and its prerequisites about an hour
ago.  Once they have propagated to all the sf mirrors, you should be
able to do the following:

   mingw-get update
   mingw-get install msys-perl-bin
