Compiling avrdude with MinGW/MSYS

It looks like Cygwin is not a recommended build environment for arvdude (see bug #29263) anymore, so in order to build avrdude for Windows you should use MinGW/MSYS. Surprisingly this is quite simple:

Resulting binary: avrdude.zip.

Note: downloading and installing libusb is optional, if you are going to use only i.e. STK-200 programmer you can skip it. It is required to use avrdude with usbasp.

Changes for avrdude 5.11 and MinGW/MSYS 20110802

Resulting binary: avrdude-5.11-w32-libusb.zip (no libftdi).

You can find build with libftdi at AVR Freaks Forum, savannah.gnu.org.

With avrdude 6.0.1 (Sep 2013) and 6.1 (Mar 2014) official avrdude Windows binaries are provided by the author.
