On my NT4.0 box, should I be able to:

1.  Download dev-src_tar.b2
2.  Uncompress and untar it.
3.  From a new obj directory, type 'configure --host=i586-pc-cygwin32
3a. Muck about with the newlib configuration to get it to work.
4.  Do a 'make'
5.  Drop the obj/i586-pc-cygwin32/winsup/new-cygwin1.dll into my current

This doesn't seem to work -- I get access violations immediately.  Is this
supposed to
work?  Or, do I have to build everything from the same source with the same

Also, I was unable to do a 'make install' which failed during gcc

Any clues?
