I did, and this time the bootstrap process completed with no obvious
errors. I had some problems though to run the newly built emacs,
because it would pick up cygwin's version of libXpm.dll whenever cygwin
was in the PATH, and that made emacs hang. I could resolve this by
copying mingw's version into emacs's bin directory.

On another note, reading the bootstrap logfile would be much easier if
rm and mkdir error messages would be suppressed. On my system rm -f and
mkdir -p do not generate error messages if the file is not there, or the
directory already exists.

Also, I had to install sed for the bootstrap to work. The need for sed
is not mentioned in the readme files I found.

Thank you for your help, it is much appreciated,
