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.
