If anyone can advise how to 'fix' the caveat listed at the bottom, I'd appreciate it.

cd /usr/src
mkdir vim
cd vim
svn co
cd vim7
./configure  --enable-rubyinterp --enable-cscope --enable-fontset
make install

only one caveat -- when invoking gvim, you have to pass the -f
parameter, otherwise you will get:
gvim: Fatal IO error 128 (Transport endpoint is not connected) on X
server :0.0.


Well, I did that last night, build from sources. I did not have the transport error you mentioned but I had trouble make it build with gtk2. Turns out I needed to install the pkg-config cygwin package for vim's configure to find gtk > 2.2. Without it, configure was only finding gtk-config, which was giving it gtk 1.2 libs.

I'm sorry I cannot help much with your error.  All I can say is that
it seems you're missing something in cygwin.

For the record, here's the configure cmd I ran (after installing pkg-config):

./configure --enable-pythoninterp --enable-cscope --enable-multibyte
--enable-fontset --enable-gui=auto --with-features=huge --with-x
