Sorry, posted this from my other non-regsitered email address!!
Following my previous post advising that the gcc 32 compiler was
exiting immediately (return code 1) without doing anything, I have
now established what is happening.
The behaviour exhibited is contrary to that exhibited by gcc 64 bit,
which works fine.
When entering the cygwin console and typing:
the screen displays
does nothing and 'echo $?' displays 1
gcc sourcefile.c works ok
So, it would appear that, for some reason, the 32bit compiler
falls over when accessing files outside of the main c:\cygwin
