I wonder why the MSYS installer tells you not use use the MinGW make.
There is even a check in the MSYS installer that checks to see that you
are not using the MinGW make. But actually, the MinGW make did work

FYI: I didn't find a "curl" for MSYS/MinGW, but Cygwin's has been
working fine for me.

realize his wishes.
Now that he can realize them, he must either change them, or perish.
