Maybe I'm just dense.  I did a clean build, from a partially-combined
tree of CVS head GCC and binutils.  I built newlib, winsup, and all the
utils (cygcheck.exe etc.).  They all linked using the cygwin-targetted
assembler and self-built cygwin DLLs.

Sorry, but to continue any further I need more information.
