RE: Compiling Playstation2 cross compiler.

This sounds suspiciously similar to problems I remember having in the past
with some compilers but not others.  The two ideas that I would suggest for
you are 1) make sure you have the latest Cygwin release and 2) play around
with text vs. binary mounts.  For reasons I don't recall, I decided to just
mount everything in text mode a long time ago.  I haven't had CRLF problems
since then.  Others on the list recommend mounting your file systems in
binary mode for similar reasons.
