Hi Rene!

There are some reasons: One is that I do also sometimes like to use 
apache with perl cgis. The apache under cygwin needs cygwin-Perl. And I 
use perl-scripts for Image manipulating. And activeperl works good with 
precompiled ImageMagick, but I cannot use both perls (already tried) 
since they have conflicts. So I decided to compile ImageMagick alone and 
normally this is no problem. (I have not only these two PCs, there is 
one that at my boyfriend and one laptop) and all work fine. Just this 
one at my home does not want to work.

A simple selfwritten program can be compiled and started. The 
prerequisites should be OK. I checked with the config.log from the 
bureau-PC and the Home-PC with a diff tool.

No, I meant that I deleted the whole C:\cygwin directory and all tmps 
and installed new in d:\cygwin

I try to be.But basically I have installed cygwin from scratch and try 
to compile ImageMagick. And on my other computers this works fine, so I 
think I do not something basicaly wrong.

Thanks a lot in advance, Dani
