./configure, make anyway. You don't want to do make install. (Or at least,
not into your running system).

Don't build within the source dir. It doesn't seem to work properly.
mkdir buildcyg && cd buildcyg && ../cygwin-1.x.xx-x/configure

You actually need to untar the mingw-runtime source to winsup/mingw, and the
w32api source to winsup/w32api. It is supposed to work with the installed
versions, but that support is broken at least in 1.3.x. A fix went in before
1.5.0, but hasn't been extensively tested.
