Hi all,
I am installing google protocol buffer in Windows and using MinGW since I 
will be using eclipse. 
Till now 
I downloaded the package from git and extracted it in 
C:/prog/MinGW/mysys/1.0/home/user. I have updated the PATH environment 
variable to C:/prog/MinGW/bin and pasted the protoc.exe in it.
In the extracted folder I ran autogen.sh which generated the folder gtest.
I have installed MySYS a unix bash and through that I navigated to gtest 
and executed the following commands -
both executed without any errors.
Executing make gives me
'**** Warning: This system can not link to static lib archive 
**** I have the capability to make that library automatically link in when*
**** you link to this library.  But I can only do this if you have a*
**** shared version of the library, which you do not appear to have.*
*libtool: link: warning: undefined symbols not allowed in i686-pc-mingw32 

But when I execute make install I get the following error. Highly 
appreciate if anyone could help me on this. Its urgent. Also where is the 
README.txt located

*'make[1]: Entering directory 
*echo "'make install' is dangerous and not supported. Instead, see README 
for how*
* to integrate Google Test into your build system."*
