  These are part of the linux kernel build system.  Cygwin doesn't have a
kernel, because it uses the features of the underlying windows o/s, so there
is no direct equivalent to these features.  There are no drivers to configure
or kernel modules to load or unload for cygwin, so there would be nothing for
config to do anyway.

  I'll reply your other post about how to build the linux kernel on cygwin
later; it's a more involved topic.  Bear in mind that although you can compile
it under cygwin, you can't *run* it except on a proper linux machine (or
emulated/vm'd equivalent).

Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
