It's been a long time since I sent the above mail but this problem just
bit me again so I thought I'd dust out the patch that I had sitting
around and see if I could clean it up for resubmission.

Unfortunately, somewhere along the line, I ended up wiping out my work with
an injudicious use of "cvs update" so I had to start from scratch.  I used
a different, maybe less intrusive technique this time.

Since this is now entirely cygwin-specific, I thought about just checking it
in as is, but I thought I could conceivably be breaking some convention by
setting CC the way this patch does so thought I would check to see if this
method was ok.  If not, I'll try to resurrect some recollection of what I
did before.

Is this ok to check in?

	* configure.host: For cygwin, redefine CC with cygwin include directory
	first to mimic the behavior of the top-level configury.  Move include
	directory out of newlib_cflags.
