Most of these questions have been dealt with in this list already, so
a search should produce the answer. Please do use the mailing list

This bug has been fixed in newer gcc releases, and you should definitely
upgrade to gcc-2.95.2 instead of using the original b20.1 compiler. See

  $ LD=/Cygwin/cygwin-b20/H-i586-cygwin32/bin/ld.exe ./configure ...

If you don't have /bin/sh.exe, then see my previous post:

  $ LD=/Cygwin/cygwin-b20/H-i586-cygwin32/bin/ld.exe CONFIG_SHELL=bash \
    bash ./configure ....
