ah. ok, never heard of these. the website says:

""" MSYS: A Minimal SYStem to provide POSIX/Bourne configure scripts the
ability to execute and create a Makefile used by make. """

You are right for both host_os and FFTWLIB_CFLAGS, these will go in the
arch tree soon.

For the rest, I have to disagree. Fixing mkinstalldirs once is way
easier than fixing all the projects using it. The same follows for
AC_DEFAULT_PREFIX or AC_CHECK_HEADERS not working properly. And for
pkgconfig, mingw should be able to compile it.

I would rather first have a solid toolchain, then try compiling. Mingw
seems to be an active project, they would surely accept patches quickly.
If that takes too long, I will make sure your patch is available.

Cheers, Paul
