Running a config script under Msys:

MINGW32_NT-4.0 GLKC1135542 1.0.7(0.46/3/2) 2002-
05-09 08:27 i686 unknown

I had problems because the script used "readlink"
and "which", neither of which seem to be provided.

I implemented the following shell stubs, I offer these
here for inclusion in a future release.

readlink;

#!/bin/sh
echo ""

which;

#! /bin/sh
# File: which
type -p $@

Hope this is useful.

    We do now supply a which script. Obviously no one else has had an issue without readlink.
