*** 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.x
As of Emacs 22.1, there have been stability problems with Cygwin
builds of Emacs using GCC 3.x. Cygwin users are advised to use GCC 4.
*** Building the native MS-Windows port fails due to unresolved externals
