RE: Problem compiling cygwin1.dll from CVS

I finally managed to re-build Cygwin, and your hint helped me a lot!
The problem was that i was downloading the sources using Cygwin's CVS on a
machine where Cygwin had been installed in NT mode (not by me).
Then I burned the sources and tried to compile on my machine, where Cygwin
is installed in Unix mode.
I had Cygwin reinstalled in Unix mode on the machine I used for downloading
and that solved everything.
Maybe a note about this problem could be added to the FAQ page named "How do
I rebuild the tools on my NT box?" ...

I had the original problem and solved it but forgot to share it with the
My problem was caused because I used wincvs to checkout the cygwin
sources because I had some problem (don't remeber what) with cygwin's
cvs. Because wincvs is running on NT it performs the LF -> CR/LF on text
files and the file ends up with the extra ^M.
Checking out the sources under cygwin solved the problem.
