I believe Brendan is looking at supporting other targets, so needs to
build it locally.

Brendan, the easiest way to get the runtime support is find a machine
with Cygwin installed, and just grab the includes and libraries from
/Cygnus/cygwin-b20/H-i586-cygwin32/{include,lib} and you should be all

If you want to build it locally without having to download the whole
bit, here's how (untested, but the basics are there ;-): download
the following "split" components from sourceware Cygwin site[1]:



Now unpack all of this in some directory, say cygwin-b20 and build/install
using your cross-compiler. Of course, unless you already have cross
compiler going, there may be a chicken and egg problem -- to build the 
cross-compiler, you need the runtime; to build the runtime, you need to 
the cross-compiler. If you already have a cross-compiler, you should
already have the runtime, right?

Since you may need termcap, also download the libtermcap.tar.bz2, which
has some modifications to support "cygwin" terminal type.
