The configuration tool v2.11 is somewhat old. If you download v3.0 of 
eCos, the newer version 3.0 of configtool.exe is included in the 
download (if I remember correctly). Recently (27-04-2012) there was a mail

[ECOS] eCos host tools for Cygwin - 120425 snapshot builds

about new tools, because the older ones seem to have problems with newer 
cygwin versions....

you wrote ....my folder is empty ... which folder do you mean? It seems 
that the library was successfully build - those 105 MB you mention? Now 
how to proceed:

Download eclipse CDT from www.eclipse.org. Currently I am using version 
Helios of this software. In the configuration of the eclipse tool you 
can specify the path to compiler (tools from the toolbox that comes with 
ecos3.0) and the path and library your build should use.

With respect to debugging: I use segger jlink and in order to do so, one 
needs an additional software in eclipse. The trick to install this in 
eclipse is:

Hope this helps - Bob
