I'm trying to compile nodejs using MSYS, mingw32 on Windows 7-64

 error: the configuration failed (see 'C:\\msys\\1.0\\home\\Valentin_Golev\\node

I have gnutils built and installed! I've checked the config.log, and there was a command:

 pkg-config --errors-to-stdout --print-errors --atleast-version=2.5.0 gnutls

I typed it in the console

Valentin Golev@VALYASNOTEBOOK /home/Valentin_Golev/nodejs
$ pkg-config --errors-to-stdout --print-errors --atleast-version=2.5.0 gnutls
Package gnutls was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `gnutls.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'gnutls' found

But,

Valentin Golev@VALYASNOTEBOOK ~
$ $PKG_CONFIG_PATH
sh: c:/msys/1.0/local/lib/pkgconfig: is a directory

Valentin Golev@VALYASNOTEBOOK ~
$ cd $PKG_CONFIG_PATH

Valentin Golev@VALYASNOTEBOOK /local/lib/pkgconfig
$ ls
gnutls-extra.pc  gnutls.pc

What am I doing wrong?

I've gone down basically the same path with the following exception:

Checking for gnutls >= 2.5.0             : fail
--- libeio ---
Checking for library pthread             : not found
Checking for function pthread_create     : not found
 error: the configuration failed (see 'd:\\Code\\Javascript\\node\\build\\config.log')

config.log basically says it cant find pthread.lib. So after copying pthread.lib into a directory that it lists as a search-able directory I come across yet another error.

--- libeio ---
Checking for library pthread             : ok
Checking for function pthread_create     : ok
Checking for function pthread_atfork     : not found
 error: the configuration failed (see 'd:\\Code\\Javascript\\node\\build\\config.log')

It seems as though pthread hasn't been updated since 2006 and in their release notes they say (ref: http://sourceware.org/pthreads-win32/announcement.html):

The following functions are not implemented:

....

      ---------------------------
      Fork Handlers
      ---------------------------
      pthread_atfork

It is unfortunate!
