You should not mix Cygwin and MinGW executables. You can have both
Cygwin and MinGW installed at the same time by removing their respective
bin directories from your Windows PATH environmental variable.
Also, the MinGW installer warns about placing make.exe under
C:\MinGW\bin, you should move it to C:\msys\1.0\bin.
As far as groff in concerned, you can use the Gnuwin32 version and place
the .exe programs in C:\msys\1.0\local\bin, don't forget the dep
package, it contains the needed dlls. If you don't need the nasm docs,
you can skip groff entirely, just don't let nasm configure find it (make
sure "which groff" command doesn't point to it).
Building nasm should be straight forward ./configure && make.

Yes, agreed, nasm is needed but mplayer doesn't need it directly, lame
and xvid needed it.
