MSVC is (I believe) faster, produces smaller and faster executables, etc.
BPBible sword bindings are compiled with MSVC.

Additionally, MSYS and (I believe) Cygwin are horrible environments to try
to use... (I haven't used Cygwin, but I have used MSYS)

God Bless,
Multitudes, multitudes,
   in the valley of decision!
For the day of the LORD is near
   in the valley of decision.
