CYGWIN on windows-2000 for target ARM & SH3 and OS-uITRON

I have configured CYGWIN on windows-2000 for target ARM & SH3. The OS
running on these processors is uITRON(Micro ITRON). While building the cross
gcc(2.95.2) for ARM/SH3, it didn't ask for any ARM/SH3 or uITRON dependent
file. So I am not sure whether I have build the GCC correctly or not.
(I did the same thing on SUN-Solaris, it did asked me about OS dependend
file, for which I included "sys-include" directory in the $TARGET)

So can any one please tell me if there is some thing wrong in installing or
I have to do something more to it.

FYI the steps I folloed was:
1) configured, build and installed binutils(2.11.2)
2) configured, build and installed GCC(2.95.2)
3) configured, build and installed Newlib(1.8.2)

We have been using cygwin on Windows NT 4 for a year now and
we do not have any problem at all! There are many helpful people
especially in this mailing list to provide good suggestion to speed
up and to ease the setup of cygwin too!

Thanks for the support all the time!
