I am a newbie to MSYS.
Basically I am compiling muPDF (an open source PDF parser).
For that, i already have installed MSYS and minGW.
Now when i type jam(a build tool like make) on MSYS console, it asks me to
set the JAM_TOOLSET
Although i did
still am getting the same message - indicate the toolset.
My OS is WinXP and there i have set jam_toolset=WINGW
The same setting works from the windows command prompt.
What settings do I need to check for jam to work with MSYS-minGW?
Any help would be appreciated!

The `set' command doesn't work the same way in UNIX, (and hence the MSYS
bash shell), as it does in cmd.exe. You would need:
This is the standard Bourne shell invocation; the variable assignment
may precede the `export command, if preferred. For the `bash' shell,
provided by MSYS, you may abbreviate to:
