I had the same problem today but found a workaround:

Adding an empty!! new line in


in line 93 right before:

After that

cmd /c 'bootstrap.bat mingw'

Works as expected again in msys command environment.

I have no clue to *.bat scripts so I have no idea why this hack works, but I
hope this can help fixing the bootstrap problem in a more elegant way.

Best regards,
