Now I report back. Thanks to all who have answered. I use windows XP,
MinGW 5.4,  MSys 1.0.11, the subversion client from the 'official' site.
Msys warned me about the a broken "make" in mingw, but said somehting
like "i can't find make.exe - that's good". Using the standard build.sh
script works fine.

I don't use --parallel, but I don't need that for now.

So again, thanks!
