I am trying compiling a cross compiler for linux running in cygwin  
(build=host = cygwin/target=linux x86), using crosstools-ng-1.5.1
I have got my compilation stopped here :

checking for .popsection assembler directive... no
[ERROR]    checking for .protected and .hidden assembler directive...  
configure: error: assembler support for symbol visibility is required
[ERROR]    Build failed in step 'Installing C library headers / start  
[ERROR]    Error happened in  
'/usr/local/lib/ct-ng-1.5.1/scripts/functions' in function 'CT_DoExecLog'  
(line unknown, sorry)
[ERROR]          called from  
'/usr/local/lib/ct-ng-1.5.1/scripts/build/libc/' at line # 156 in  
function 'do_libc_start_files'
[ERROR]          called from

function 'main'
[ERROR]    Look at '/test/x-tools/i686-unknown-linux-gnu/build
