Yes, I can confirm that buiding on a cygwin host by a valid
cross-compiler is working nicely. I justed tried, and for me it still
works. Possibly an issue about passed configure options?

Just one point I found today. The new break-point handling seems to
have problems in certain ways for me (at least on win32 versions). I
get in case of setting breakpoints in Obj-C always the assertation
'set_raw_breakpoint: Assertation sal.pspace != NULL' failed'. This is
new and is somehow related to recent enhancements to breakpoint
