I had various problems using 1.6 when building 1.8.6 and 1.9 from
trunk. For several reasons the generated configure scripts and the
resulting makefiles just blow up.
This also happened with usage of mingw-make (that's why we use msys-make).
Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from
the experience of others, are also remarkable for their apparent
disinclination to do so.
