Re: Building Emacs-cvs on Cygwin

    i.e. GCC-4.0.3, 4.3.0 (and also 3.4.4-1) works correctly with GDB but not
    GCC-3.4.4-2 (exp. package in Cygwin, it applies the '24196' patch) which I
    used to build hello.c and Emacs-cvs.

    For some strange reason, using '-g' with GCC-3.4.4-2 does not insert the
    right debug symbols in the executable.

If an old version has a bug that has been fixed, the solution is simple:
upgrade GCC.

Eli, would you like to document this in the appropriate place?
Perhaps etc/PROBLEMS, or wherever there are Cygwin build instructions.
