How far into configure did you get before it crashed the first time?  That
may shed some insight into why it's crashing.  Now your crash was in sh.exe
right?  Cygwin /bin/sh isn't bash--it's the not-so-heavy simpler "ash".

Were you using the "20020131-1" version?  If yes, I'd upgrade "ash" then try
again without cygserver.
