Re: Building cygwin1.dll

Any pointers on how to compile cygwin1.dll? I installed cygwin latest onto a windows machine, installed all the prerequisites as per faq (gcc perl et al), downloaded a snapshot, configured and maked but keep running into compile errors.

There is no mention in the docs regarding version of gcc required, possibility of using gcc as supplied by cygwin or mingw, etc.
I am trying to build a custom cygwin1.dll to test
I have set the send and receive buffers to 256k so that I can get transfer speeds up on a high latency rsync copy from one cygwin windows to another cygwin windows box with over 300ms latency between the two, but a 100mbit bandwidth
I tested with a previous version (very old) of cygwin that had the buffers at 8k and that caused the transfer speeds to go down to next to nothing, so the theory seems sound that increasing the buffers should increase the amount of packets that can be sent without receiving an ack.
I have already patched the code, now I just need to figure out how to actually build cygwin, and 3 hours worth of google + reading of cygwin mailing lists have been fruitless.

The error I get when trying to compile using the default cygwin install of gcc and tools:

... lots of successful compiles, and then:

hi John,

gcc and g++ version 4.5.3 (GCC)
as provided by cygwin packages

gcc4-core                      4.5.3-3
gcc4-g++                       4.5.3-3

usually this is enough for building
