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.
