Has anyone else tried building GCC4 with Cygwin? I've been playing
around with it. One problem has been that Cygwin doesn't have an
official autogen build. After a query on the Cygwin mailing list,
someone was kind enough to send me their build of it though.

So, I've been following through the GCC4 readme file and have got this
so far:

  $ ./create-srcdir
  patching file ltconfig
  Copying files
  configure.ac:117: error: possibly undefined macro: AC_PROG_LIBTOOL
        If this token and others are legitimate, please use m4_pattern_allow.
        See the Autoconf documentation.

Does this matter? Anyway, I carried on regardless...

  $ cd builddir-cross

  $ make
  cd /home/adamr/gccsdk/gcc4/srcdir && autogen Makefile.def
  make: *** [/home/adamr/gccsdk/gcc4/srcdir/Makefile.in] Error 53
Any ideas?
