The Rockbox UI Simulator can be build by using MinGW + MSYS.

The Rockbox UI Simulator is made while building it though the following messages are output.

.../tools/ line 17: svnversion: command not found

- MinGW and MSYS are installed.
- It is necessary to install SDL.
  - You will update the version of MSYS's make to 3.81.
(MinGW's make (mingw32-make) does not used.)

- You will install zip.exe for Windows.
(for make zip/make fullzip)

This task depends upon

Don't forget to install perl (and mingw-crypto), otherwise make will fail..

After a while waiting on 'Generating dependencies' I get this:
'/z/rockbox_git/rockbox_zvm/build/make.dep:1: *** target pattern contains no `%'. Stop.'

I attached a patch in which I solved the svnversion errors (+ it includes  FS#9668 )
