"It gave errors" is way too vague.  You'll have to
describe exactly what you did and exactly what the
output was if you want help."


Ok:
1) cygwin is installed under C:\cygwin folde. 
2) I unpacked mysql linux source to C:\cygwin\home. 
3) I CD to the new folder
(C:\cygwin\home\mysql-5.0.37).
4) run the command:
 ./configure --prefix=/home/mysql-5.0.37
--without-server
(I tried also the command 
./configure --prefix=/home/mysql-5.0.37
--enable-server )
I got a long output.
5)  make
6) make install
for the last command I got:

/usr/bin/install: `bench-count-distinct' and
`/home/mysql-5.0.37/sql-bench/bench
-count-distinct' are the same file
make[3]: *** [install-benchSCRIPTS] Error 1
make[3]: Leaving directory
`/home/mysql-5.0.37/sql-bench'
make[2]: *** [install-am] Error 2
make[2]: Leaving directory
`/home/mysql-5.0.37/sql-bench'
make[1]: *** [install-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/mysql-5.0.37'
make: *** [install] Error 2
