Great write-up. Would you care to add it to the coreboot wiki?
Personally, I use Cygwin to do builds on windows machines. I have
found the mingw/msys install to be a real PITA with downloading all
the stuff separately as they have it on sourceforge now.

Hello Marc,

I would be happy to add this to the wiki. I suppose the first step is
for me to request a coreboot login.

Yes, the mingw/msys setup is a pain. I used cygwin myself a while back.
I switched to mingw/msys when building the early gcc x64 cross compiler,
and have been using it ever since.
