Let's get some perspective here.  You were asking for help, right?  And,
the first thing you did in asking for help was to by imply that the OS
used by the person whose help you were soliciting "blows".  Whatever.

Given the rest of your message, apparently you took my "correction" as a
sign that everything else I said was also valueless.  You can, of
course, also do that if you like, but I was trying to help you figure
out what was going wrong.  If you don't try my suggestions then maybe
someone else here with lots of experience building newlib on windows
will be willing to help instead.
