Thanks for the info. Asking the user for the location of msys isn't
really an option. Its not upon installing the application that i need
this information but during the build process (I am not using autotools
but a tool called scons). I might treat it like any other scons
configuration option and use with-msys=C:\msys\1.0 I think i will just
have to make some "educated guesses". Not optimal, but it will work in
most cases I think.
