I am trying to install the GNU GCC compiler version 3.0.2.
I have cygwin installed and a previous installation of GCC
(version 2.9.5). I downloaded the source from CVS into a
directory called gcc in the root directory of cygwin. After
which I gave the command ./configure. That worked fine
without any errors. On the ./bootstrap command, I get the
following error:
Bootstrapping the compiler

make CC="gcc" libdir=/usr/local/lib LANGUAGES="c " \
        CFLAGS="-g " MAKEINFO="/gcc/missing makeinfo " \

I have the gettext utility installed as well. 
Can someone help me out by replying to this email address
with some suggestions?
