First things first: don't call it glib, it's *glibc* :-)

Second, look for the posting from asheth at in the archive
a week or two ago, June 15.  They tested with

         - gcc 3.3.3
	- glibc 2.3.2
	- binutils 2.15
	- Linux kernel headers 2.6.6

Please give that a try.

Third, I read recently of trouble building the linux
kernel under cygwin.  I don't recall where I heard it,
or whether a patch was available.
Be sure to check the linux-sh mailing lists.
