Re: Failure building libsigsegv-2.6 [1.7]

Stock 2.6 is known to be broken when used with cygwin.  Don't use
unpatched upstream with cygwin.  Instead, use my patches (which are part
of the official cygwin distro).

Yes, you are probably missing the libsigsegv package (with the development
headers) and libsigsegv1 package (with the precompiled library), although
I didn't check your attachment.  And if you MUST rebuild from source, then
either build from the source package shipped with cygwin, or pull my
patches from:

git pull git:// master

> I have attached my installed.db.

No, you attached installed.db.gz, which I can't easily read without extra
effort on my part to unzip it.  We are serious about attaching
uncompressed 'cygcheck -svr' output rather than a compressed installed.db,
as it is a much easier format to review in the list.
