Yes. MSYS is the quickest option for the various things
you need at shell level (bash, make, cp, sed etc.)

Then you need a full build toolchain:

* gcc
* g++
* binutils
* flex or lex
* bison or yacc

Simplest is probably to start with downloading and installing MSYS,
start a shell, run

   $ ./build.sh

and see how far it takes you.

I know the source code compiles fine under mingw (as I use that
for cross-compilation) but I do not have a 'native' system so
I cannot give a clear recipe of what to install.

Best wishes,
