How about adding a line in the FAQ to the "how to build cygwin" (104)
stating that the "configure ; make" mentioned does produce a Cygwin with
debugging symbols?

And the link in the FAQ is wrong:

"How can I debug cygwin" (entry 105) says:

"To build a debugging version of the Cygwin DLL,
 you will need to follow the instructions at"

The above should point to entry 104, not 102.
