Jan-Jaap, as defeatist as this sounds, I'd suggest that if you "know
very little about unix and/or cygwin" there's little point in you trying
to get GCCSDK 4.1 to work with Cygwin :(

Even if you solve the autoconf version problem, you're still going to
have to find a working version of autogen...

However, if you'd like to persevere ;) Alan Buckley is probably the
person to ask - perhaps he'll contribute here :)


P.S. I would be extremely happy to be corrected, so apologies if things
have moved on since I tried to make this work.
