Really?  In a standard configuration, "/mingw/bin" comes before "/bin",
so this ...

... is inconsistent with standard practice.  If yo have a MinGW port of
an executable, it had better not be in the MinGW bin directory, (or if
it is, it had better be named differently), if you want MSYS to favour
its own version; (this is precisely why mingw32-make.exe, in the MinGW
bin directory, is not called make.exe).
