I've been trying to build VLC 10.0 using the MSYS+MINGW environment. I think
I have installed all the tools properly. However, I can't seem to get the
./bootstrap or ./configure command to complete successfully. It's hanging
randomly at different places. I've read the wiki and see that someone else
has experienced similar problem. However, reading the mingw-msys e-mail
archive, I couldn't find any resolution regarding this issue. Can you send
me a pointer to where I might find the solution?
The wiki indicates that it has to do with the fact that msys will not work
with the newer bin-utilities.
