It's not needed at all, and is only there because during development,
it's handly to have the script pause for us directly after a recently
added feature (to allow confirmation that it works, etc)   It will be
removed or revised shortly.

"Remarks" about the build script are best treated the same as the rest
of mythtv: Feature requests to /dev/null or the wiki unless
accompanied by a patch implementing same (in which case to -dev list
or trac is good), bugs/faults/errors to trac.

Other than the Freetype issues (which I'll look into), How are the two
of you going with building/running mythtv on win32?      All positive
feedback is appreciated. :-)
