Re: documentation on building the cygwin dll

Hello Elfyn,

After reading the FAQ, I did exactly what was mentioned there, namely:

I got the latest sources from CVS (a whopping 30MB+ source).  Of course, this created a ./src directory.

I then created a ./obj directory (in the same level as ./src) and went inside it.  I also created a /install directory as mentioned
the FAQ.

Here is a transcript of what I did (after logging in to cvs).

$ mkdir /install
$ cvs checkout winsup
$ mkdir obj
$ cd obj
$ ../src/configure --prefix=/install -v > configure.log 2>&1
$ make

The output of configure and make including the transcript of what I did can be found here:

Each of the links contains plain text and is less than 100k.

Am I missing anything here?  I just want to build the cygwin dll simply.
