Hello Chris,

    I used MSYS2, not all the tools can be compiled in MSYS2. MSYS2 has 
a pre-built dtc package, so you do not need to compile it. And 
ged,texinfo,gdb,rtems-tools can not build success in my MSYS2, but these 
tools are not essential for compiling RTEMS6. I just compile expat,gmp, 
binutils,gcc. I built last week, these tools should be OK.
BTW: build on windows will take a long times.
