I tried MSYS again, starting Eclipse from inside MSYS.  The Eclipse
Autotools plugin simply doesn't work properly with it.  It calls out
to sh using ordinary Windows pathnames.  The \ are eliminated as the
arguments are passed, resulting in errors.  Bottom line is the Eclipse
Autotools plugin is not ready for prime time with MSYS.  I'm going to
try building Freeciv outside of Eclipse, then just debugging the final
installed civclient.exe.  At this point I'm really only trying to
trace Freeciv to see how it works.
