[ECOS] Trouble with eCos Config Tool

I too have recently started with eCos.  I tried running configtool on 
cygwin but it did not work.  Like you, I looked into it and found that 
this is apparently a problem with newer versions of cygwin.

In the end, I found the page that you referenced, and downloaded the 
updated tool on this page.  I think this is called 
"configtool-060710.exe".  This works for me.

I take it that, though the above web page says that configtool is a 
wxWidgets app, it is only partially so and still relies on unix calls 
for which it needs cygwin.
