[ECOS] eCos tools binary installation under Cygwin

I've built and installed the ARM development tools under
NT4/Cygwin using the instructions at:


Assuming I've got a second computer running NT4 w/ the same
version of Cygwin, can I just copy the /tools directory to the
second computer, or do I need to copy the source/build
directories and do a "make install" on the second machine?

I don't use Windows much, and my past experience with copying
application program directory trees from one machine to another
hasn't been very successful.  Under Win32, installing an app
seems to weave bits of the app deep into the system in
inextricable (and inexplicable) ways.

I'm hoping that stuff built/installed under Cygwin behaves in a
more Unix-like way...  ;)
