Ah. I guess that would be the wrong part :-)
I don't ever build inside the source tree. I don't install the source, I 
just download it, and I manually extract to 
srcdir=/cygdrive/d/compile-dir and then

cd /cygdrive/d/compile-dir
mkdir build

I just assumed (and I know what that does, sorry) that people would use 
the /usr/src default location where the source was installed, and not be 
silly like me and create their own separate directory for compilation. Ha!

I stand corrected,

Your mouse has moved.
Windows NT must be restarted for the change to take effect.
Reboot now?  [OK]
