Making GCC 2.95.2 Problems

There is a prebuilt version?  I thought I had to do this until the gcj
became part of the distribution with Emacs.  A prebuilt version would be
alot easier.  Is there a quick way to find this on the cygwin site, or do I
need to search a users group, ... ?  

BTW, What should I pay attention to so that I know where prebuilts of
anything are?  I have subscribed to the and for a while now.  Have announcements come
out and I have just missed them?  Maybe it is because Outlook limits my
ability to find and organize things.  (I have been Ctrl-A anything that
looks useful and then Alt-Tab'n to Emacs for saving these in text files with
the same emails of like topics.  I know that sure isn't the way to go, but
it is my way of keeping good things around for when I have time to try and
implement them)

Once I get this gcj thing going, I will tackle gnus and mail, but I have
read a few horror stories of people trying to use mail and getting
everything POP'd off their server and not being able to read there mail
through Outlook anymore.  Didn't want that to happen, so I have sort of
shied away from it.

This is caused by the lack of an environment variable MAKE_MODE=unix.  Or
can use the --unix switch with the Cygwin make, as in make --unix bootstrap.

It appears that you're attempting a big task without being familiar with the
tools.  Why are you building gcc-2.95.2 yourself when you can download a
prebuilt version from Mumit Khan?
