Re: GCC 2.95.2 Windows NT Configure Batch File
Cygwin includes a pre-built binary installation of gcc-2.95.2. If you wish
to rebuild gcc , you should download the companion source from a cygwin
mirror, and configure in the usual way (make a separate build directory, run
the configure script in the gcc source from the build directory). I'm
waiting for a fresh gcc-2.97 to appear at codesourcery, when I will attempt
again to build that in cygwin.
