Greetings, Michael Wild!

In order to pinpoint an error I'm trying to compile cygwin1.dll from
source following the instructions here:

My question is: do you actually need to rebuild it, or you just need the debug
symbols? However,
when building binutils, I trip over this error: According to
DJ (,
"attempts to build the old binutils/gdb in CVS are going to be
doomed". Apparently the development of these packages is now tracked
in a separate git repo. So, my question is now, how do I get a working
build for the cygwin DLL? Do I have to replace binutils/gdb in the CVS
checkout with the git checkout?

How are the current snapshots built?

Thanks for any pointers in the right direction.

Dear Andrey,

I really need to build it, in order to pinpoint which commit breaks things.

OK but why are you building 'binutils' if you just want to build the Cygwin
