Well, for one, the log of the make invocation would be helpful, as it
would show the exact commands you're running and the errors you get.  You
may want to compress it with either bzip2 or gzip, as it might be quite
large.  Alternatively, you could snip out the parts that definitely
completed successfully.  Some information on your system (the output of
"cygcheck -svr" as an uncompressed non-inline text attachment, to be
precise) would also be useful in case you are simply missing some *-devel
packages.  This would be enough information to start helping you diagnose
your problem.
