yep -- each script contains a script (in some package schemes -- #3, I
think -- you have to apply the patch FIRST, and then the script is
created in <srcdir>/CYGWIN-PATCHES/ or something).

No, no, no. Not "What flags does Jan use" but "What flags WERE used to
build the official cygwin gcc package". (Hint: only cgf knows for sure)

Yep -- you'll have to edit the line where it says "host=i686-pc-cygwin"
and change it to something appropriate.

Ah, but back in b20 days we didn't HAVE package-based distribution.
Everything was all in one "full.exe" 21MB download. There was no way for
a non-core developer to add something like "rpm" to the distro back then
-- it just wasn't possible. A lot of things have changed in 3 years.
