    15 Is it '''recommended you install MinGW, MSYS and MSYS DTK''' before you install the RTEMS Tools. The autotools installer builds autoconf and automake before installing them on your computer. There is no safe way to build autoconf using a cross-build on a Linux host. To build the autotools packages on Windows MSYS and MSYS DTK are required. The autotools installer checks for them and aborts installation if they do not exist.  Visit the MinGW [http://www.mingw.org/download.shtml Download Site] which should refer you to the MinGW [http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=2435 Sourceforge Files page].
