Building dev-src.tar.gz works just fine.

All of the "cygwin-src-1999*.tar.gz"  snapshots include Alan Modra's
1998/10/20 change to "include/opcode/i386.h", 
but not the matching changes to "gas/config/tc-i386.c" or
"gas/config/tc-i386.h", etc.
The following patch is the *minimum* to get it to build, but you want to
self-host you should get an updated "gas".

The 1999/01/30 snapshot includes Corrina's ENOMEDIUM patch to

but there is no "cygwin-src-19990130.tar.gz" with the matching change to
How is it determined whether or not to put a newlib snapshot up?
Is this done automatically?
