I have been having a hard time getting going on MinGW/MSYS. The end goal is to build on Windows some code which builds on Linux, and that I have inherited.


I have run the MinGW installation program and selected all the dev tools that seem relevant.  My installation includes the following:

C:\MinGW>tree C:\MinGW\share\libtool

It barfs.

As it should.

I don’t seem to have libtool executables in my path.


I could patch it, but I fear I am making a Bigger Mistake.


Did I forget something? What was it?


Enquiring minds want to know.
