Linux kernel compilation for x86 on Cygwin


I'm trying to compile the Linux kernel using the gcc toolchain of cygwin.
This time, I'm trying to compile the kernel for the host machine (x86).

I'm using a managed mountpoint (should I mount the mountpoint with the --executable or --text options too ?) and I have installed gcc-core, gcc-g++, binutils, cpio, make, patch, tar, vim, gettext, libintl and libncurses on cygwin using the setup.exe

However, I'm encountering the following problems.

Any help or suggestion is very welcome.

Many thanks in advance,


1) make HOST_LOADLIBES="-lintl"
