I tried to build emacs 23 on Cygwin via:

I've built cygwin's emacs 23.1 package (http://cygwin.com/ml/cygwin-apps/2009-08/msg00002.html). You could take a look at the source to see what I did and try to adapt that to your needs. Two things jump out at me from your output. First, you should use gcc-4 rather than gcc-3; cygwin builds of emacs with gcc-3 are known to be unstable. Second, I applied a patch to get rid of '-Wl,--image-base,0x20000000', which has also been known to cause problems.

By the way, this may be a good time to remind the emacs developers that I sent some patches a while ago:


Could you consider applying these now that 23.1 has been released?
