Hi All

Can anyone provide me with a step-by-step instruction to build newlib under window10 cygwin32 or cygwin64?
Such as tool chain and environment settings.  I googled and could not find it.

I followed the instruction in here:  section 6.21

I fire up a cygwin shell and I try to build it but got a lot of errors.
Under the folder `/c/cygwin/home/src' there is a folder 'newlib' where I run git to get the source of newlib

Those are the command I used:

$git clone git:// newlib

$ gcc --version
gcc (GCC) 7.3.0

$ gcc --version
gcc (GCC) 7.3.0

$ autoconf --version
autoconf (GNU Autoconf) 2.69

$mkdir build
$cd build
$../newlib/configure --prefix=/home/src/install -v
---lots of messages print out from configure script.  No error.

$ make
make[1]: Entering directory `/c/cygwin/home/src/build'
mkdir -p -- ./etc
Configuring in ./etc

Thanks and Best Wish
