ok, that is new news, I did not realize you were building under xp.
that is interesting, I will try and help you as I can. The solutions
that I present to you about using dpkg under windows are very unstable.
I have not the time at work to get the cygwin port of the dpkg running
%100 percent. But if you have interest (probably not, thats ok) then
you might want to try this out:

dpkg runs (barly) under cygwin, 
you will need the deb_helpers. (which i started to port)

I started a port of the debian build packages to ming,
you need to patch some of it. (cant find this right now)

In any case, config.status is a standard autoconf package.

I dont know offhand, I do know that you should then, if not running on
linux, rerun you automake, and autoconf. The changes that I sent you
where cross compiler specific for the configure bits. (but you might
have a problem with the md5 (which they patch, but I patched the

the is a helper file from trecc
./treecc-mingw32-0.1.2/etc/Makefile:76:skel_DATA =
cpp_skel.h c_skel.c c_skel.h

Did you install the treecc after you built it?
make install : it gets installed in the package I built here :

and that will have to be put into a path that can be found,
I think the treecc code handles this somewhere.

that is very good news. 
Please also run a cvs diff and post the patch if you changed any c
I would be interested in what changes you made, then I can leapfrog off
of you. That way, you can build under mingw native, and I under cross.
