  See for why!

  As to the source code for gcc, you can get it from whereever you got those
linux binaries from.  That's the beauty of the GPL!

  Alternatively you could download the source from one of the mirrors listed
at  But it's possible the version you were using on your
linux machine has some arm-wince-specific patches added to it, so you'd be
better off with the source from your original compiler if you can find it.

  Building cross-compilers can be complicated, and it's way off-topic for the
cygwin list.  You probably want to use the crossgcc list if you have any
trouble building it.

Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
