during compilation of MICO an error occured as described shortly in
thesubject. To explain you in detail what's happened, I present
the complete error szenario. I installed the GNU-Win32  Beta 19 under
Windows95 and Windows NT4 in the default directory. After that
I also installed the update to B19.1. The application I wanted to compile
was MICO in version 2.1.1

(available at:  http://www.vsb.cs.uni-frankfurt.de/~mico/ ).

I started the make process with the configure script and after that I
started make. There was no error until the file "orb.cc" was compiled.
The following message appeared on screen:

c++  -I. -I../include -I/Cygnus/b19/mico/./include/ministl -O
  -c orb.cc -o orb.o
5) commit_and_inc: VirtualAlloc failed
orb.cc: In function `static class CORBA::ORB * CORBA::ORB_init(int &, char
**, c
onst char *)':
orb.cc:1686: virtual memory exhausted
make[1]: *** [orb.o] Error 1
make: *** [system] Error 1

This error seems to be an error from GNU-Win32, isn't it? If yes, what has
to be done to compile MICO completely? Is there a patch to
