I use GNU tools either in a W95 & W98 station without problems by some
months. I've downloaded the rpm gnu tools from OAR ftp and then I've
created the target tools for SuperHitachi microprocessors. The latest
version of Cygwin work fine in W98, you can download it from

I've a make list but unfortunately she is in italian language. However
I attach that to this e-mail perhaps you can understand something.

To manage the rpm file of gnu tools you must install the rpm manager
which isn't in the Cygnus package. If you want I can send you the
.tgz file (it is circa 4M).
