Hmm; MSys users should be setting LANG (etc) in ~/.bash_profile
(etc) if they want it set.
 MinGW is gcc + binutils; MSys is the bash shell and common
I think that we should avoid pointing Windows users towards MSys, lest
the mailing list turns into a "bash-help" or "unix-help" list.
I'm starting to regret that we didn't decide to move all of the
scripts to Python for 6.4.
