Theoretically, that should work too. The problem there might be that msys is a 
lightweight unix environment similar to cygwin, and bash, perl, make and 
almost all of the commandline tools are msys-binaries, that means when they 
look in /usr/... they actually access somehing like C:\MingW\msys\1.0\...

Otoh, the gcc driver and all its sub-processes are plain windows exes. That 
works transparently, as long as the executable that spawns those tools (make 
in the case of using automake) is itself a msys-binary.

That might not work very well with cmake, which is a windows-exe. It won't find 
tools that only exist in the msys enviroment. You would probably need a cmake 
build for msys, dunno wether such a thing exists. It might be easier to use a 
cross-compiler on linux.
