Yep, I guess I'm stubborn with respect to using MSYS.  I find it
creates the appropriate directory structure, etc., making it easier
for packaging.  Incidentally, the method you mention above doesn't
work because it causes issues with MSYS path handling.

We actually had this conversation back in 2008 (my memory failed me :)
).  I had a hard drive crash between the last 3.81 and 3.82 so I ended
up losing my build script.  In recreating it for 3.82 I missed the sed
hack that I came up with to address the issue:

mv config.h config.orig ; sed -e 's/:/;/' config.orig > config.h

I'm rebuilding again with the sed command included and I'll upload a
third 3.82 build to and drop the original ill-advised patch.
