Maybe. The icon on Windows says "Git Bash", but the window title says
Git is from here:  https://github.com/msysgit/msysgit

I had to patch the Makefiles to get my fpc and lazarus to build inside

No, I get the error also when building from the standard Windows cmd prompt.

mingw/msys came with the Windows port of Git. We are switching from CVS to
Git in my work place.

I'm a bit confused about what you are doing, but it looks like you can't

I try to build Lazarus trunk. FPC 2.6.0 is installed and it works ok.
I was able to build Lazarus at my home Windows after installing "Git Bash".
I don't know what is different here. Maybe I must start cleaning the path.
