Thanks for all the replies. I have decided to give MSYS a try. I may
also try Ubuntu later on but my Ubuntu is being ugraded and can't be
accessed for now.

I have run into a problem. I believe I have installed everything
correctly, but hey I ain't perfect so I may have goofed something or I
just got the first headache Jean-Baptiste was mentionning. :-)

In any case bootstrap fails with the following output. Is it possible
I did not unziped the autoconf update in the correct location? When I
installed msys it created a tree under c:\msys\1.0. I unzipped what
was under usr in the archive to that directory. It made more sense
there than under c:\msys. That created a directory 'local' under
c:\msys\1.0. Hopefully this is correct. I did the same for the other 3

$ ./bootstrap
++ dirname ./bootstrap
+ cd .
+ test -d extras/contrib/bin
++ uname -s
+ test .MINGW32_NT-5.1 = .Darwin
+ pkg-config --version
+ export AUTOPOINT
+ test ''
+ AUTOPOINT=autopoint
+ autopoint --dry-run --force
+ set +x

+ echo
