When building (by typing make in the obj directory) in
obj/i586-pc-cygwin32/newlib 
using the steps above, the configure script in this directory complains that
it 
can't 'find install-sh or install.sh in .. or ./..'  There were various
other 
configure mishaps -- config.guess and config.status were not found.  I
copied them 
from the src directory to the obj/i586-pc-cygwin32 directory.

I was not installing over my current, B20.1 tools like the other message
implied.  
The error was gcc.info not found.

I will try again with /src and /obj as my directories since maybe there is 
something path dependent.
