[PATCH 4/8] Mangle expected sysroot output to match MSYS shell

MSYS mangles UNIX paths on execution such that it prepends its root in
Windows format. This affects PKG_CONFIG_SYSROOT_DIR and thus the
check-sysroot test. Detect MSYS from the OSTYPE environment variable and
adjust the expected test results to match. This likely means that
sysroot support doesn't actually work on MSYS, but there probably aren't
any toolchains that support sysroot there, anyway.
