[vlc-devel] mingw-msys building 1.2.0

The website description for compiling vlc 1.1.* in mingw-msys has been 
working great for me.

However, I am trying to build from git and 1.2 and have run into some 
building errors.

It may complicate things but I have also tried upgrading to MSYS 1.0.15.

I am unfamiliar with autoconf and automake so I'd appreciate if anyone 
can make a call as to what m4 or autoreconf is trying to tell me in the 
output below. I can see that a directory cannot be removed but the user 
has the same permissions as before (Administrator) and the temporary 
directory I assume is created by the configure process. I can delete the 
directory manually afterwards.

Thanks in advance
