/usr seems to be redirected to root on my version/instillation of msys, hence it has vannished to all intensive purposes. Is this normal, and if so why ?
 
Also what is going on with MSYS and MinGW directory tree wise, can they just be merged into one tree.
 
I need Unix/Linux compatibility in the tree structure otherwise GIT does not seem to work correctly.
 
Many thanks in advance,
