I apologize for what will be a question coming from a limited technical understanding.  MSYS is used to build a makefile and contains binaries of programs I assume are under various licenses, some may be GPL, but I haven't reviewed them yet.
 
What I wanted to know is if any of these software components of MSYS are transferred/copied into the resultant makefile and then into the resultant end program?  If I understand makefiles correctly, the answer is no, but Id rather ask.
 
The reason I ask is to know if there are licensing considerations as this becomes a method of 'distribution'
