Mingw use the microsoft C runtime library (msvcrt).
AFAIK, MSYS use the newlib C library (like cygwin).
Perhaps Earnie or
other msys people can confirm this.
You can find a minimal port of glibc for mingw in
gnuwin32.sourceforge.net. I don't know how much of
glibc is available.

If you have already ported the software to MSVC then just use _findfirst and
_findnext with MinGW too.
