      $ cygport cygwin.cygport download allmostall

   That should do it.

Before I got this reply I tried native 64->64 ./configure && make && make install (roughly speaking) out-of-tree against cvs and... it worked like a champ! One quirk -- by default it builds as x86_64-unknown-cygwin, whereas iirc the 32-bit equivalent builds as *-pc-cygwin... after supplying host/build/target configure arguments and /usr prefix, everything seemed fully cooked at a glance.

Doing it the cygport way sounds even better, though, since then I get setup64.exe-based deployment, autorebase, and whatever postinstall magic, avoiding the old make install / crash / make install ritual.
