I was able to install cygwin with these tools. Googling "identity mount" 
and mingw did not give me much. I think you are telling me that I need 
to set an MSYS mount in /etc/fstab such that the cygwin path becomes an 
MSYS path, but I am not sure.

The MSYS README.rtf specifically tells me that:

'Using binaries with different runtimes:
You can't use Cygwin binaries at all and if you try you'll most likely 
just cause the processes to "hang".'

Is this true and are you perhaps telling me that I must use cygwin to 
use these tools, and there is indeed no way to use the cygwin versions 
when in MSYS ? Or is there indeed a way to use the cygwin versions of 
dejagnu and expect ( I found a mingw version of tcl ) under MSYS ?

All of the data generated in your IT infrastructure is seriously valuable.
Why? It contains a definitive record of application performance, security 
threats, fraudulent activity, and more. Splunk takes this data and makes 
sense of it. IT sense. And common sense.
