I found this page to be very helpful setting up the tools 
and getting RTEMS to build on MinGW/MSYS. :-)

Yes. I had to change /etc/fstab manually because I installed
it on a different directory due to space requirements. 

(However, an 's' was to append on .../rtems/4.7/build/rpm's' to get 
this installation working)

I got this package. Next step will be building the needed tools. 

(At this point of my experience I've installed cygwin and MinGW 
on my PC - using with different serch paths. Bootstrapping on cygwin
buildin on minGW.)

Thank you for the attention,
