Failure to build Emacs under Cygwin using GCC

Hello, I am using the very latest version of Cygwin and all packages are of the latest version. I wrote a simple bash script that is supposed to checkout Emacs from savannah, then build it using GCC. The script looks like this:
cvs -z3 -d:ext:address@hidden:/cvsroot/emacs co emacs
cd emacs/nt/
./configure.bat --with-gcc --no-cygwin --no-debug --cflags -I/usr/include/noX
make bootstrap
make install

The actual checkout works fine, but the build process quickly ends with the
following error message:
gcc -o oo-spd/i386/preprep.exe \
           -mno-cygwin  oo-spd/i386/preprep.o

Essential Lisp files seem to be missing.  You should either
do `make bootstrap' or create `lisp/abbrev.elc' somehow.

exit: Illegal number: -1
make: *** [maybe-bootstrap-SH] Error 2

What am I doing wrong here? The script is issuing a make bootstrap and not
just a make. I was hoping time would fix this problem, but it must be local
to cygwin or something because I've had it for weeks now. Any ideas?

/ Mikael
