My last error cant figure out...

You need Mesa or an OpenGL-System to compile Armagetron.
Maybe your libGL needs the X libraries and your system does not
find them? Read the file doc/install_linux.html.
I thought cygwin came with Mesa libs for Cygwin/X? (Cyg has... "OpenGL
Graphics - The Mesa 3D Graphics Library provides software-based OpenGL
I tried somehow on command line specifying where the mesa library is. but i
wasnt sure if this path was even right (probably not)?
% ./configure --x_libraries=/usr/X11R6
and didnt work as well.
I wasnt sure at this point, i was hoping for extra help.
Thanx in advance.
Sorry, I don't know anything about Armagetron but it looks to me like the
configure script is getting confused and thinks that it's looking for
the win32 OpenGL rather than libGL.dll.a. You may need to provide the
configure script with some schooling on *.dll.a files.
