If you mean that it compiles faster, than I can assure you that it isn't the 
case. There isn't much of a difference between MSYS and cygwin in that 
aspect (all the more when you consider that MSYS is just a fork of cygwin).

But talking of speed, what I can assure you is that cross-compiling (i.e 
using the linux native tools) is a lot faster than native compiling with 
cygwin or MSYS (I would say twice as fast, and surely more than that for 
the bootstrap & configure steps).
