I would suggest changing your development environment to linux, if this is 
possible for you. My impression is, that most the ecos toolchain and 
installation problems result from using Windows as host platform.

So switching to linux means editing ecos configurations by hand, but so you 
better know what you are doing, hopefully. Further the unix environment 
gives you a lot of very powerfull and conveniant tools for the development 
process. Of course, cygwin tries to give you some of the common tools which 
are included by default (sic!) in any unix environment.

Final remark, this is just my personal impression. I dont think that using 
Linux will solve all problems of the world, but using Linux for ecos 
development will make things easier.
