Thanks, that's done it. I added some new links to the Community Links page. Hope others find them as useful as I do.

I have an automated bash script for downloading necessary MinGW files at the MinGW wiki. I actually have a minimal one for MSYS as well that I use for myself. Would like to create one that others can find useful too when I have time and make it publicly available. If anyone's interested in a script for MSYS, let me know and I'd appreciate any suggestions on what you'd want to see in the download. I just download the bare minimum at present.
The scripts are temporary measures until mingw-get is available to do the job. I've been trying to keep directory locations up-to-date as best as I can in the script to download mingw and it's a nuisance. If anyone cares to help out by correcting links at the wiki when they spot them, the help is greatly appreciated. I look forward to mingw-get solving these issues instead of scripts.
By the way, I just updated the information at my own web site on customizing msys ( http://www.distasis.com/cpp/msys.htm ).
