The build instructions at tells us this:

To set up a proper environment in MSYS2, you need to run msys_shell.bat from the Visual Studio or Intel Compiler command prompt.

But in the latest MSYS2 version you actually need to use a special parameter to pass the PATH variable to the shell:

msys2_shell.cmd -use-full-path

Without the flag cl.exe won't be found and running ./configure fails.
