When the installation ends, perform the post-installation steps
described on this page of the MinGW site:
in the "After Installing You Should ..." section. These steps are
important for making your installation complete, and in particular
will produce a desktop shortcut for running the MSYS Bash shell,
from which you will configure and build Emacs. Once you've made the
shortcut, double-click on it to open the MSYS Bash shell window,
where you will proceed with the rest of these instructions.
In addition, we suggest to modify your system-wide Path variable to
include the 'bin' subdirectory of your top-level MinGW installation
directory, the one you specified to mingw-get ("C:\MinGW" by
default). This will allow you to invoke the MinGW development
tools, like GCC, from the Windows cmd.exe shell windows or from
other Windows programs (including Emacs, after you build and install
(We recommend that you refrain from installing the MSYS Texinfo
package, which is part of msys-base, because it might produce mixed
EOL format when installing Info files. Instead, install the MinGW
port of Texinfo, see the ezwinports URL below. To uninstall the
MSYS Texinfo, after installing it as part of msys-base, invoke the
command "mingw-get remove msys-texinfo".)
command "mingw-get remove msys-texinfo", or mark "msys-texinfo" for
removal in the mingw-get GUI, then select Installation->Apply Changes.)
At this point, you should be ready to configure and build Emacs in
its basic configuration. Skip to the "Generating the configure
