Re: Attempting build of setup.exe from source-tarball fail ("no joy")

	Not to cause problems or anything and not anything would likely
come of it anyway, but I thought I'd try to give the tarball a spin and
see if i could generate the binary (since that is, sorta, the purpose
of the Gnu people can rebuild their binaries and/or make
mods to them...etc)

	I downloaded and unpacked, looked at README.
	At first I didn't run, as it said not to use it if I
was building from a tarball (which appeared to be the case).
	That failed in the config...config log section that failed was:

locate of cc1plus shows:

It seems like configure is trying to use c++ version 3.4.4 and I
see two copies of cc1plus.exe for 3.4.4 depending on whether one is
using ming or not.

I know I don't have either of those library paths in my PATH
executable -- but that should be handled/called by gcc/g++ -- not something I should be concerned about.

Any idea what might be causing the problem? I could post a cygcheck output if this was a cygwin bug, but I'm assuming this is SOME variation of a cockpit error since I've never gotten setup or cygwin to build successfully any time I've tried it (sigh).
