Same here :-|  And I keep my Cygwin reasonably current.

    Claus> So, things to check in your build process are:

    Claus> 1.  Is your MSys/MingGW installation complete?  

As far as I know.  It used to work fine -- in fact, it _still_ works
fine if I build the commit that corresponds to the 22.2 release.
    Claus> 2.  Is MSys/MingGW first (before Cygwin) in your path?  

No, it's not on my PATH at all -- I just invoke c:/msys/1.0/bin/make "by
hand".  That's always worked in the past.

    Claus> 4.  Is your working directory clean?  

Yes.  I _always_ "git-clean -dxf" before attempting to build.
    Claus> 5. Are your build-flags sane?  

I believe so.
    Claus> 6.  Are you using mingw32-make?  

    Claus> 7.  Before building, do you run "clean" and
    Claus> "bootstrap-clean"?  

Effectively, via "git-clean -dxf".
    Claus> 8.  Do you bootstrap?

Thanks very much.

The reason Florence is famous is that in 1450, it was New York.
