gdbserver 6.7.1 for mingw32ce connect to host gdb problem

using the newly supplied build script, the bfd patch is applied and the
build is clean.
but now I am struggling to get gdbserver to accept a connection from
development host using target remote xxxx
first I noticed that gdbserver needs a command line like this
gdbserver.exe 169.254.2.2:9999 \\path\\test.exe
without path to .exe it just exits with a usage message
this is due to the fact that wince doesn't define a default (current)
directory like '.'
Test over RNDIS and WLAN with the same results. gdbserver times out after
about 8 seconds
on the host
target remote 169.254.2.1:9999
returns Connection refused
tcp test is OK, able to ping the IPAQ 2795 target.
I'm kind of stumped. I hacked a few diagnostics into gdbserver/server.c to
try and trace what was going on. I wondered about __MINGW32CE__ asserted in
the make CFLAGS
any ideas what might be going on, or how best to trace this?

Thanks to all the help from Pedro on this. I'm including a build script
that patches gdb 6.7.1 and builds gdb and gdbserver. not sure the best way
to post this so I'll just include it inline for now.
# built with mingw32ce distro 0.51
echo "UNTAR $src DISTRO"
tar xvzf $src.tar.gz
echo "PATCHING $src DISTRO for mingw32ce"
# using bfd patch submitted by Pedro 2007-12-10
patch < ../../mingw32ce.patch
echo "BUILDING GDB"
../$src/configure --target=arm-wince-mingw32ce --prefix=/opt/mingw32ce
echo "GDB BUILD COMPLETE"
echo "BUILDING GDBSERVER"
arm-wince-mingw32ce-strip gdbserver.exe -o gdbserver-stripped.exe
echo "GDBSERVER BUILD COMPLETE"
echo "copy gdbserver-stripped.exe to the device and rename it gdbserver.exe"

I had never submitted it upstream ...
