I just posted this to the crossgcc list, and perhaps folks in Cygwin
list would be interested as well. I still need to update my HOWTOs on
building Cygwin and Mingw cross-compilers, which I'll get to soon. I'll
also send the relevant ones to DJ's howto server.

I must say that Cygwin is certainly competitive in hosting these cross
development toolchains now that it works so well, especially in terms
of performance compared to the old days! Kudos to cgf and his elves and
all the unpaid and under-appreciated contributors.

Those of you building various cross-compilers for newlib-based targets
on Cygwin (should work on other hosts as well) may be interested in
the following HOWTOs. 

* Building Linux dev tools hosted on Cygwin.
  Shows how to build a Linux 2.4.0 kernel on Cygwin host after you're done
  building the cross-toolchain.

* Building a newlib-based target hosted on Cygwin.
  I used powerpc-eabi target as an example, but others applicable just
  as well.

All quite trivially scriptable; I do believe however that it's much more
instructive to see what needs to be done and how it's done before using 
someone else's script.

I welcome suggestions, fixes, updates, elaborations, criticisms, etc. 
Email asking for hand-holding someone through the process however will 
go into the proverbial bit-bucket. Likewise for questions on specific 
boards and other things not related to the mechanism of building the 
development tools.
