putting msys/bin to the PATH works with executables but my problem is
different. I'm using CVS with an ssh tunnel and I need to read .ssh/config
file with some options for SSH client to connect to my server.  At the
moment i've got it working by setting the env variable HOME and putting
.ssh directory in %HOME% ...  however I'm not sure this would be ok for my
builds on msys. The best scenario would be if I can just configure msys to
work with my builds ( also manual builds ) and just run the buildslave
without any alternative setup for it. I'll let keep you updated.
