I successfully built ddd-3.3.1 under the latest cygwin release.
Afterwards, I got the latest CVS snapshot and tried CVSMake, but
it failed for (at least) two reasons:

1.) The automake process (Building "configure" out of "configure.in")
    failed. This may be due to missing libtool and may thus not be a bug.
    Running aclocal on a Linux box, I got two errormessages:
        automake: Makefile.am: required file `./ChangeLog' not found
        configure.in: 268: required file `../ltconfig' not found
    Can these messages be safely ignored? What can I do to fix them?

2.) the "lextoC" and "yacctoC" scripts assume that extensions "*.c"
    and "*.C" are different, which is not the case on a Windows system,
    so "*.C" overwrites "*.c" which leads to breaking the build process.
    I would suggest to use "*.cpp" instead of "*.C" in this case.

If ddd maintainers like, I could write a fix for the second problem
and contribute it. Just let me know how I can contribute.

My final goal is to add support for Windows-pathnames like 
"D:\mydir\mySource.cpp" to DDD. Do you know if anyone has tried \
this yet, and what sources might need to be changed?

Thanks in advance,
