I'm trying to build the 3.1.7 tagged newlib. It runs into this problem:

c++wrap -O2 -g -fno-rtti -fno-exceptions -fno-use-cxa-atexit -Wall 
-Wstrict-aliasing -Wwrite-strings -fno-common -pipe -fbuiltin 
-fmessage-length=0 -MMD -Wimplicit-fallthrough=5 -Werror 
-fmerge-constants -ftracer -c -o _cygwin_crt0_common.o

This looks like a clash between the installed toolchain header and the 
one in the winsup tree?

Is this a known problem?

Maybe I shouldn't be using the native Cygwin compiler for rebuilding the 
Cygwin DLL; what is the right way?
