problem compiling cygwin, make fails in winsup/cygwin

 I am attempting to build cygwin from source.
 The make fails in i686-pc-cygwin/winsup/cygwin, error is
make: *** No rule to make target `/usr/lib/w32api/Makefile', needed by `/lib/'. Stop.

Before this point, the following messages were also emitted.
Making each object:
cc1(plus):warning: changing search order for system directory "/usr/lib/gcc-lib/i686-pc-cygwin/3.2/include"
cc1(plus):warning: as it has already been specified as a non-system directory

Then immediately before the fatal error:
make[2]: Circular /usr/lib/gcc-lib/i686-pc-cygwin/3.2/../../../../i686-pc-cygwin/lib <- 
                  /usr/lib/gcc-lib/i686-pc-cygwin/3.2/../../../../i686-pc-cygwin/lib dependency dropped

(This lib directory did not exist. Creating it has no effect.)

To reach this, i did the following
1) Untared cygwin-1.3.22-1-src.tar.bz2 in /usr/local/src of a cygwin computer.
2) created and entered a parallel build directory, cygwin_build.
3) entered the command: ../cygwin-1.3.22-1/configure --prefix=/usr/local/cygwin
4) then went make

Where am I doing wrong? Are there any instructions for this?
Now with e-mail forwarding for only US$5.95/yr
