Hi All,
  When I try to install and build gcc, binutils and gdb for ecos after
installing cygwin and ecos, the following error comes while configurin
binutils for building it. 

This is what I execute and the error follows.
$ /c/src/binutils/binutils-2.11/configure --target=i386-elf --prefix=/tools
xec-prefix=/tools/H-i686-pc-cygwin -v 2>&1 | tee configure.out
Configuring for a i586-pc-cygwin host.
Created "Makefile" in /tmp/build/binutils using "mh-frag"
ot find -luser32
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
*** The command 'gcc -o conftest -g -O2 conftest.c' failed.
*** You must set the environment variable CC to a working compiler.

When I try to do cc myself.
$ cc conftest.c
BASH: cc: command not found

echo $CC shows CC as empty.

echo $PATH:
