Sorry still have not had time yet...

Yes, although there is a *lot* you can do without using shell scripts, and 
a shell is not needed for any of the GRASS start-up or module-running 
infrastructure any more, only for modules that actually are shell scripts. 
Also we need to investigate the possibility of using non-Msys shells (e.g. 
the one that comes with Windows services for Unix???) and the fact that 
Msys still needs the path set to find its utilities and things like that. 
A way to go on this one.

P.S. attached are a couple of patches to the current CVS to fix 
compilation of libraster and r.mapcalc on Windows. I don't have convenient 
CVS access right now to apply them...
