Oh. Now THAT'S embarrassing! I think I blinded myself
by following a procedure for building the GNU tools
under UNIX and then configuring them for
cross-development on an ARM core. But I wasn't
thinking through the changes that would have to be
made when coming at it from a Cygwin environment.
Thanks for the help! I mean it!!!
