Building SpamAssassin for Cygwin

I noticed that a couple of people on the list seem to have managed to get
SpamAssassin running on Cygwin. I am trying to build SA-2.41 (on Win 98) but
I'm encountering a problem. I tried the SA mailing list but mostly I got
blank looks (their list-archives only have something relating to a previous
version, and which does not apply to the error I am getting).

perl Makefile.PL seems to go okay, but the make process then fails as

make -f spamd/spamc
make[1]: Entering directory /home/eye/develop/Mail-SpamAssassin-2.41'
gcc -g -O2 spamd/spamc.c spamd/libspamc.c spamd/utils.c \
        -o spamd/spamc  
make[1]: Leaving directory /home/eye/develop/Mail-SpamAssassin-2.41'

What I think is happening is that the .exe suffix is being added to the
binary (I'm assuming this is one of the executable files), but something
then can't find the executable file as a result. The /usr/bin/perl line,
correct? Can anyone who has got it working give me a few clues please?

perl is v5.6.1, if it makes any diff.
