In that case, I suggest having winsup configure check for newlib in the 
build tree, and choke if not found. We basically add -nostinc when
compiling both winsup and winsup/utils, and also EXE_LDFLAGS always
has '-B../../newlib -L../'.

If this seems appropriate, and it does to me to avoid bizarre and hard 
to track down errors, it's a trivial change. I'll send a patch if ok.
