eCos host tools for Cygwin - 120425 snapshot builds

The prebuilt eCos host tools for Cygwin provided within the eCos 3.0
release do not work with recent Cygwin installations due to their
reliance on tcl84.dll. In response to this, I have generated new builds
of the tools which use libtcl8.5.dll. The new tools are built from
current eCos CVS sources and should otherwise exhibit the same behaviour
as the previous snapshot builds of 2011-02-09.

The new snapshot builds for Cygwin can be downloaded from the eCos ftp
site and are located in the "anoncvs" directory:


Please use a mirror site in your own geographical region to access these
files. Sites which mirror the eCos ftp area are listed at:

The eCos host tools may be extracted into the current working directory
from the downloaded archive file by using the following command at a
bash prompt:

  tar jxvf ecos-tools-bin-120425.cygwin.tar.bz2

If you are using an older Cygwin installation which does not include
libtcl8.5.dll, you should stick with the eCos host tools provided with
eCos 3.0 or with the snapshot builds of 2011-02-09.

Feedback on any remaining compatibility issues is welcome. Please report
any issues at:
