I'm trying to compile ClanLib with Cygwin on my Windows XP Professional 
x64 Edition. On my Notebook with Win32 I sucessfully compiled ClanLib 
with Cygwin, but on Win64 I've a problem executing the 
script. The ClanLibbers recommended me to revisualize this problem here.

Perhaps it is a problem with automake, autoconf, auto*.

 From the ClanLib user mailing list:

I read the following in 'INSTALL.mingw':
"You should also be able to compile ClanLib with Cygwin, the
./configure script will detect Cygwin and append the '-mno-cygwin
-DWIN32' flags to the compiler call."
"ClanLibs configure script should be able to detect a mingw or cygwin
environment automatically and setup everything according to that."

Ok, here we go, I've installed Cygwin on my Win64 (with all necessary
and optional packages):
Checked out revision 458.

Missing any packages? Any suggestion?

Thank you very much.
