What part are you interested in ?  The Linux->Cygwin cross-compiler,
Cygwin->m68k-coff-palmos cross-compiler or Linux->m68k-coff-pamos
cross-compiler ?  I am assuming the cygwin-m68k-coff-palmos cross-compiler.

Are you builing your cross-compiler on a machine running Linux or Cygwin ?
I am using Linux for all builds, Cygwin is just used for execution of the
final cross-compiler.

I have not modified any source code.  You should only do this if you are
sure there are bugs in the m68k-coff-palmos port and you are trying to fix

You say your applications barf with lots of errors.  Are these compile time
or link time errors.  If you send the errors to the list, someone might be
able to help you out.
