Odd, I was running it on a solaris machine not windows.  Maybe you  
forgot to recompile it on a UNIX machine?

configure --with-headers=/cygwin/usr/include --with-libs=/cygwin/usr/ 
lib target=i386-pc-cygwin && make && make install

would be an example of how I used to build one up, see the gcc  
documentation for details.  --with-sysroot or some such might be  
another way to to do it now-a-days.
