   I have downloaded and extracted the 4.5.2-Source and tried to compile
   it using cygwin unter Win98, but it failed:

   $ ./configure
   Configuring for a i586-pc-cygwin32 host.
   *** Cannot configure in source tree.
   *** Make a parallel directory and configure there.

The error message is correct: you can't run `configure' in the source
tree.  You need to create a separate tree for object code:

	$ mkdir build && cd build
	$ /path/to/src/configure
