Re: having trouble compiling gcc (3.3.3 or 3.3.5) in cygwin


my original question was how to get gcc to compile (w/o using distcc) as a means for building my cross compiler.  at least thats what i thought i was doing.  i was following this howto: .  like i said, im a bit out of my league here.

do you still think i need to be over in the other mailing list?  i ask b/c i am a little confused as to whether i should be following that guide at all right now.
