the MinGW setup does not update the PATH env var... Or does it?

As far as I understand, it does not. I have added mine manually.

No, the MinGW installation does _not_ as of yet set the PATH for it.
I saw a post from someone at their forum volunteering to change this, but it shouldn't be expected to work in the near future, though.
I set my manually, and think that everyone else who uses it does the same.

InstallPath MinGW=G:\MinGW

That's my mingw.ini file. What happened was I first installed the candidate version, 3.2 I think, and it wrote the first line. It did not work. It said it was expecting an '='. So then I downloaded the current, 3.1? version, installed it over it, and it seems to have added the second line.
I just tried deleting the first line, but the detect feature still doesn't catch it.
What I did was I entered the path manually, and replaced all programs with their full paths, and everything works.

Maybe it would be easier for you to scan the file backwards, one past the first occurrence of ':\' (colon-backslash)

When I installed MINGW manually, i did set up the paths. So, it might help.
