Yaakov, many thanks for the answering. I now understand.

While build success in my home computer yesterday, I failed do the
same thing in my office computer this morning.  The cygwin version are
all 1.7.X and the procedure I followed should be the same.  Below I
cut the error message, if you have some time, please again help to
check it.   Thanks again!
