You can use cygwin to compile vlc, just make sure you read the INSTALL.win32 
file carefully before that.

The problem with Msys+Mingw hasn't been solved yet (Actually I didn't look 
at it recently), but MsysDTK-1.0.0 and MSYS-1.0.8 have been released a few 
days ago, so it would be worth giving them a try. I haven't tried them 
myself yet but I surely will.
