When I'm running the configure file for the Libmtp library using Msys, everything seems to be going fine till I get an error that tells me that it can't find the Libusb library, I have installed it and its in the program files folder. It tells me to set the LDFLAGS environment variable to include it in the search path where I have it installed. Then it gives me an example which is:

setenv LDFLAGS=-L/usr/local/lib. 

But I'm on Windows so it would of course be a different directory. When I type the setenv command into msys it says command not found. How do I set the search path for minGW/msys? I'm using Windows 7 64bit
