Possible bug in Emacs 21.3

I have downloaded the source of 21.3 and built it on a PC running Win2000
and using the Cygwin distribution and following the INSTALL instructions in
emacs-21.3/nt/INSTALL (well, I ran "configure.bat --prefix=/c/emacs" and
then type "make install" as I have done for all other source distributions

The resulting binary falls over with a "Abort, Retry or Ignore" dialog when
any package referenced from my .emacs that attempts to "require" the cl.el

Just typing M-: (require 'cl) from within the Emacs session will bring up
the problem.

I would imagine this is more likely a problem with my Cygwin setup than an
Emacs bug as I am sure that pretesting would have found this one very

I used gcc 3.2.3(?) to build emacs from the source. I then tried using gcc
2.95 but that fails with a source code/compile error part way through the
make, so I rebuilt with gcc 3.2.3 and tried again - same results.

I don't have Microsft C++ so I can't build the binary using the other method
and the pre-built binaries for 20.3 hasn't been produced as yet.
