I'm executing a bootstrap on msys, but the process terminates with the message:

../bootstrap: line 199: unlink: command not found

I am a bit surprised that the unlink command is not inherent in msys. Any idea how I can remedy this issue?

P.S. (Can someone explain why msys and mingw are two different downloads and how they are separate?)
