Stock 2.6 is known to be broken when used with cygwin. Don't use
unpatched upstream with cygwin. Instead, use my patches (which are part
of the official cygwin distro).
> Perhaps I am missing some packages. Any idea?
Yes, you are probably missing the libsigsegv package (with the development
headers) and libsigsegv1 package (with the precompiled library), although
I didn't check your attachment. And if you MUST rebuild from source, then
either build from the source package shipped with cygwin, or pull my
git pull git://repo.or.cz/libsigsegv/ericb.git master
> I have attached my installed.db.
No, you attached installed.db.gz, which I can't easily read without extra
effort on my part to unzip it. We are serious about attaching
uncompressed 'cygcheck -svr' output rather than a compressed installed.db,
as it is a much easier format to review in the list.
Don't work too hard, make some time for fun as well!
