     Hello folks,
If a C++ compiler, flex, bison and Guile are installed on Windows or Mac OS X, what prevents LilyPond from being built — in other words, why is GUB needed?

GUB was created because having a user create an appropriate build system on any 
given platform was a lot of work, and the building depended strongly enough on 
individual versions of the installed software that it was difficult to give 
advice to people on how to build on their system.

For a few years I tried building lilypond on Cygwin, but then it became 
unmaintainable, so I moved to Linux.  With different versions of Linux, that 
even became difficult, so I moved to a VM and LilyDev (which has a known-good 
configuration in a particular Linux variation installed in a VM).

building on cygwin is feasible. OF course slower than a build on Linux but feasible with no need of any patching on latest 2.19.8x
