I am happy to try to help you thru the troubles you run into so that  
we can get you building.  My only request is that we do it on the pd- 
list so that it is archived and others and join in if they want to.

It seems to me that your /usr/local/ might not be setup right.  In  
MSYS, run the command "mount" and send the output to this thread.

If nature has made any one thing less susceptible than all others of  
exclusive property, it is the action of the thinking power called an  
idea, which an individual may exclusively possess as long as he keeps  
it to himself; but the moment it is divulged, it forces itself into  
the possession of everyone, and the receiver cannot dispossess himself  
of it.            - Thomas Jefferson
