Re: trying to build gdb with renamed cygwin1.dll

Well, if you intend to use a cross-debugger eventually, it's probably best to start out with one now. They don't need as much support for the host as a native debugger, and so are more likely to build. In the case of MinGW, this is particularly true.

If the debugger does not yet support your target then just pick a random target and pipe-clean your build with that. Some have issues of their own, but most work.

Thanks for all the help. Sorry if I posted your email will be more
careful in the future. Is there a moderator here that can remove the
email address from my previous post?

No, once it's in the wild it's not retrievable.

See this absolutely hilarious attempt to get a message removed from the GCC archive:
(sorry for multiple links - they're not very well threaded).
