EXTERNAL: Crosstool Build Fails under cygwin

I was trying to use crosstool-ng under Cygwin to build an x86 Linux cross-compiler (need to be able to generate ELF output) and ran into the same issue with _libintl_gettext. I found the following two references with patches to the Makefile and nconf.c files:


Unfortunately, I didn't get much farther than that before I had to put my effort on hold.  I couldn't get past the build steps involving cloog-ppl.

Subject: EXTERNAL: Crosstool Build Fails under cygwin

Hello all,

I've been instructed to get a cross-compiler for Power PC working under Cygwin (crazy idea I know, but that's what they want!). Having trouble, though.

I have tried crisstools-ng version 1.17 and 1.18,  but they won't build. 
"Configure" seemed to work fine, but "make" for both versions stopped with this error:

My system is Windows 7 64 bit, and I installed the latest Cygwin (I think it's 1.7). I installed all the dev tools in the Cygwin setup.

This may or may not be relevant, but:

A couple of days ago, I downloaded and installed crosstools-ng 1.9 
(because it was at the bottom of the page! I guess I failed the first 
intelligence test!).

1.9 built OK, and I was able to run the "menuconfig" option and set up 
my toolchain. Running the toolchain build took a loooooooooooooooong 
time (11 hours!) and eventually ended with an error. Here are the last 
few lines of the log file:

That seems slow! (Athlon 64 X2 dual core @ 3.1 Ghz and 6 GB RAM).

I've become completely obsessed by this task (i.e. building a toolchain 
for cygwin) and I've lost all sense of perspective, so suggestions would 
be appreciated!
