Is anybody using MSYS and has success with building the installer?
I've read bug 294122 and tried MSYS's perl and ActivePerl but had still no success.

I run into the same issue building the installer on msys. I just ended up 7ziping up the bin folder for distribution. I had successfully built the installer in the past just using cygwin before my hard drive died.

http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?t=364654 has the answer. The path is the issue. cygwin/bin needs to be before %windir%\system32
