Hi, thanks a lot for your help.

I followed your instruction, I install cygwin-devel. I have InfoZip, with
its directory set in environment variable "PATH". I get gst source with git.
Start building gst with:

autoreconf -vi

I get errors at make.

I redo process above several times, I got the same thing. I tried both with
smalltalk-3.1 and smalltalk-3.0.
What can I do? Do you have any idea what goes wrong?
