Assuming you followed the directions on this page:
You'll end up with a directory called src. Move "src" to /usr/src/. Your
directory path should be /usr/src/src, so cd to /usr/src. Make a direcory
called build and cd into build. Type "../src/configure
--prefix=`pwd`/../install". Then type "make; make install". Now the
freshly built binaries should be located in /usr/src/install. At this
point I usually do the following:
4)"tar -cvf ../foo.tar ."
6)"tar -xvf foo.tar; rm foo.tar"
7)"mv bin/cygwin1.dll /"
8)"tar -cvf /usr/foo.tar ."
10)"tar -xvf foo.tar; rm foo.tar"
Then close down all cygwin processes include bash, open up explorer and
switch to the folder in windows corresponding to "/". In my case, that
would be "C:\cygwin". Then cut the cygwin1.dll in that folder and switch
to the bin\ folder (in my case that was C:\cygwin\bin". Paste to the bin
folder and confirm overwriting the existing dll. That's it!
