It would appear that a bug in the Cygwin32 B19 compiler binaries is the
problem here. I upgraded to Mumit Khan's EGCS binaries
( and a
failing build of powerpc-rtems binutils then started to work OK. Beta 19.5
which should be based on EGCS and is allegedly due in the middle of the
summer should fix these problems.
