Originally, I did build it under MinGW using MSYS but it was becoming troublesome keeping it all working with the changes to MSYS and MinGW that were going on at the time. MinGW is nowhere nearly as well supported as Cygwin. Cygwin offers a much richer build/development environment. At least in theory, I should be able to run whatever I build in the Cygwin environment. Cygwin is maintained better. Other than one hiccup that had nothing to do with Cygwin, once I got the compilers building under Cygwin, I've had relatively little trouble continuing to build them compared to the difficulties I had had under MinGW.

But why are you building it as a "canadian cross"?  In other words, why would you use Cygwin to build this cross compiler, instead of MinGW itself?
