What library did you copy in? newlib? glibc? what target library are you
building for?

Of course, but you're not building for cygwin.

This is a risc elf-format cross compiler. It's probably not installed

You don't need to install cygwin AFAICT - there may be nothing wrong
with your cygwin. There is almost certainly something wrong in your
cross-compile setup. I suggest you talk to the nice folk at

We're happy to help you get the cygwin-target gcc running of course, but
I'm not clear what your desired binary target is.
