        Is MinGW/MSYS supposed to be supported now? Is a particular version required?

        I've gotten builds to work with cygwin and wanted to try MinGW/MSYS. It ails almost immediately because it can't find cpio. It acts as though the uname result isn't recognized.

        I'm running on a 64-bit Windows 7 system.

        The complete config.log is attached, but the part that I think matters is here:

        hostname = USTR-SALTERTA-1
        uname -m = i686
        uname -r = 1.0.17(0.48/3/2)
        uname -s = MINGW32_NT-6.1
        uname -v = 2011-04-24 23:39

        ...

        configure:4413: found /usr/bin/cp
        configure:4425: result: /usr/bin/cp
        configure:4454: checking for cpio
        configure:4487: result: no
        configure:4502: Could not find cpio!
        configure:4504: error: Cannot continue
