[ODE] Problem compiling 6.0-rc3 under mingw and msys

It works for me, the 2 things that could be causing problems are 1) some 
configuration files have been "fixed" by replacing Unix end of line
characters with Windows end of line sequences, or 2) some file is broken 
as the error on configure points out.

As a rule of thumb, please, PLEASE stop your compilation process as soon 
as you get an error either on autogen.sh or configure, those are steps 
that must be taken in order to get a good compilation, if those fail, 
compilation is going to fail as well, this isnt the first time someone 
just asumes that errors when running configure are harmless.

Anyway, I see you're using devcpp's MinGW and make, that could also have 
something to do with the problem, what version of make is that?

Do you get the same error when running the configure script that comes 
with the rc? try extracting the file to a fresh directory and skip the 
sh autogen.sh command.
