    2727If you want some excellent tools or wish to build RTEMS on Windows the MinGW project provides just what you need.  The RTEMS Tools as installed do not need any extra packages, DLLs or installs to work.  You could use any available ''make'' program or tools to build any RTEMS application.  Please note that the MinGW and MSYS installation is only necessary if you want to build RTEMS.  If someone else provides you with your desired RTEMS board support package you do not need them.  The RTEMS Tools (compiler, assembler, linker etc.) do not depend on them.  The only exception is the RTEMS ''Autoconf and Automake'' subpackage, but this package is only needed if you want do build RTEMS from the CVS sources.

    29 The MinGW project has four packages we are interested in using.  You should install them before you install the RTEMS Tools.  The first MinGW package contains a Windows native GCC compiler.  The second package is the Minimal SYStem (MSYS), the third is the MSYS Developer Tool Kit (DTK) and the fourth is M4 for MSYS.  MSYS is a stand alone package based on the excellent and successful Cygwin package but simplified to providing a self hosted mingw32 target POSIX style environment.  It provides a shell with enough functionality to run configure scripts from the Autoconf package.  It is simpler to install and setup than the larger more complex Cygwin package.
