FYI, there can be no solution when there isn't a clear description of the
problem.  You haven't posted any information on what Cygwin packages were
installed on your system by setup.exe, as indicated in
<>.  You did not outline the exact steps that
would allow people to reproduce the problem.  You didn't even post the
right makefile (you posted the top-level one, but the one that bombs is in
tools/preverifier/build/win32).  This is especially important since, by
your own statement, other people cannot exactly reproduce your problem
(different error code), even if people here could be bothered to download
kvm and compile it.  And to top it off, you've switched the subject of the
message, so the continuity of the thread is broken (since you "mail
client" doesn't bother keeping thread information either).

That being said, remember that from the point of view of many build
environments, Cygwin is more like Linux than like Win32.  I don't know
anything about kvm, but you may need to re-run configure, or something...
Also, error code 255 usually means that a program couldn't be "exec()"d,
so check the appropriate make rule in the offending Makefile.
