I'm trying to build my own msys-1.0.dll.  I tried to follow the MSys from scratch instructions at  http://www.mingw.org/MinGWiki/index.php/MsysFromScratch (even though they indicate they are unfinished) and cannot even build the gcc in step 1 (again, the FIXMEs on the web page for that step, might have suggested this to be the case).
I realize that the process is not clearly laid out, but I'm very interested in getting this to work and have a fair bit of c++ programming experience.  Are there any further resources or straight-forward instructions somewhere that could help me in my quest for knowledge?
