Headaches building Source Navigator under Windows

Thanks Ian.

I went to Cygwin site and figured out how to get the rest of the utilities.
So, now I am at the point where the 'configure' as described in the readme
file, breaks with the following errors.  Could you possibly give me some
direction on them? I've numbered the output for each issue I saw as it ran.

Directory tree I'm using:

C:/docume~1/bruce/hpkeck~1/snkeck~1   is where Cygwin and bin utilities are
installed
C:/docume~1/bruce/hpkeck~1/snkeck~1/source   is where the Source Navigator
source is
C:/docume~1/bruce/hpkeck~1/snkeck~1/snbuild    is where my build directory
is

I execute the configure from snbuild by invoking the following:

../sourc/configure --host=i686-pc-cygwin
--prefix="c:/docume~1/bruce/hpkeck~1/snkeck~1/opt/sourcenav"


1.
grep: /source/libstdc++-v3/configure.in: No such file or directory

Hi,

you need a full working Cygwin environment (which is kind
of like UNIX) to build Source-Navigators, the include
development tools like "make" (maybe in the usertools
and binutils packages?).

Don't know a great deal about Cygwin, but there is
a bunch of information over at:
http://www.cygwin.com/

I don't remember much about building on HP-UX, I'm
not sure if you'll need gcc or the HP-UX compiler.

Any HP-UX users got any tips?

Ian.
