I am building gtk with MSDev for win32. There are some rules in the 
makefile that rely on awk, and the current cygwin net release (I updated it

the command that fails is:
awk -f maketypes.awk gtk.defs macros >gtktypebuiltins.h

The NTVDM CPU has encountered an illegal instruction.

I was able to reproduce the crash on win98se as well.
I think it's pretty easy to reproduce,
with cygwin's bash, cd to gtk+\gtk and type the command
