don't have gcc for make, and no make for gcc

I seem to be in a catch-22.

I downloaded gcc and had it ready with its makefile. I typed "make 
bootstrap" in the cygwin window. But I don't have "make" yet. Error.

So I downloaded "make" and have it ready. I type "./configure" in the cygwin 
window and it says
"configure: error: no acceptable C Compiler found in $PATH".

I'm confused. If I had a C compiler, I wouldn't need "make".

What am I doing wrong?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
