Thanks, I didn't know that. Unfortunately, the outcome is identical:

          (o o)
cd /usr/src
cp -r mutt-1.5.20-1/ mutt-1.5.20-1.milu     # copy mutt source package
cd mutt-1.5.20-1.milu
touch install-sh                            # else you'll get an error
touch config.sub                            # ditto
./configure --build=i686-pc-cygwin --prefix=/usr/local/mutt \
  --enable-imap --enable-smtp --enable-hcache --with-regex --with-ssl
# configure output snipped
checking build system type...
configure: error: invalid value of canonical build

Might there be something wrong with the source package for mutt?
I remember building mutt from another Cygwin source package without
any problems.
