*** Building the Cygwin port for MS-Windows can fail with some GCC versions
Building Emacs 22 with Cygwin builds of GCC 3.4.4-1 and 3.4.4-2 is
reported to either fail or cause Emacs to segfault at run time. In
addition, the Cygwin GCC 3.4.4-2 has problems with generating debug
info. Cygwin users are advised not to use these versions of GCC for
compiling Emacs. GCC versions 4.0.3, 4.0.4, 4.1.1, and 4.1.2
reportedly build a working Cygwin binary of Emacs, so we recommend
these GCC versions. Note that these versions of GCC, 4.0.3, 4.0.4,
4.1.1, and 4.1.2, are currently the _only_ versions known to succeed
in building Emacs (as of v22.1).
*** Building Emacs for Cygwin can fail with GCC 3
As of Emacs 22.1, there have been stability problems with Cygwin
builds of Emacs using GCC 3. Cygwin users are advised to use GCC 4.
*** Building the native MS-Windows port fails due to unresolved externals
