Please make sure your mailer honors the Reply-To: field.  We should keep
this discussion on the list, so this appears in the archives.

FYI, I was able to CVS checkout and build setup from scratch just now by
using the command sequence below (with the exact output).  I'm also
attaching my "cygcheck -c" output, just in case, so you can compare our

A wild guess: you *do* have gcc-mingw and mingw-runtime installed, right?

[pechtcha:/tmp/test] cvs -z3 -d checkout setup
<see attached checkout.log>
[pechtcha:/tmp/test] cd setup/
[pechtcha:/tmp/test/setup] chmod a+x libgetopt++/
[pechtcha:/tmp/test/setup] ./
<see attached bootstrap.log>
[pechtcha:/tmp/test/setup] mkdir ../build
[pechtcha:/tmp/test/setup] cd ../build
[pechtcha:/tmp/test/build] ../setup/configure -C --enable-dependencies --disable-shared --host=i686-pc-mingw32 --build=i686-pc-cygwin 'CC=gcc -mno-cygwin' 'CXX=g++ -mno-cygwin' --enable-maintainer-mode
<see attached configure.log>
