The MSYS package (a fork of Cygwin) uses an older version of newlib for
it's private msys target, not a mingw32 target. The msys target is not
meant for the public to use other than enhancing msys support. If you
want a POSIX library for windows, visit www.cygwin.com.
I don't know about subdirectories for mingw32 in newlib. Perhaps
someone has done some porting of newlib and submitted patches, that is
possible and doable. You won't though have POSIX functionality without
a lot of work and Cygwin has done that already.
