    In line 2751 of tcl.m4 there is a check like:


    This does not include MSYS_NT-10.0. The line should be changed to:


    MSYS_NT-* will appear if you install MSYS2, but do not install gcc, because you want to use autotools/make with Visual Studio compiler. In such a case, you run the vcvarsal.bat script, to get a command prompt with the visual studio compiler tools, and then you run bash in that command prompt.


    %comspec% /K "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2017\Community\VC\Auxiliary\Build\vcvars64.bat" && set "MSYS2_PATH_TYPE=inherit" && C:\dev\msys64\usr\bin\bash.exe --login

    Then uname -s returns MSYS_NT-10.0.
