MinGW windows path problem
sh.exe must not be in the path for "MinGW Makefiles" to work.
If make finds sh.exe in your path, it will use it, and then "MinGW Makefiles" will not work. If sh.exe is in your PATH, then you must use "MSYS Makefiles" or "Unix Makefiles". I suppose I could put a check in for this, and if sh.exe is found and you try "MinGW Makefiles" cmake produces and error.
