Yes. Because it is needed to construct a src/gnuwin32/fixed/h/ config.h which is consistent with one's installation. The config.h in the sources won't work on my set up because it assumes a load of packages which are not installed. I started with a clean Windows 2003 Server and installed, MinGW, Msys and the Rtools, nothing else.

I do now have everything built except the CHM documentation.
