Actually I already use with success the Cygwin SH tool chain with 4.5.0
(rtems-4.5.0.tgz). In the snapshot I think are necessary the new version
of gcc (3.x ?) and newlib how you have suggest me, so with snapshot I
can't use old Cygwin SH tool chain and I must realign with last (perhaps
only present in source code form).

You said that the Cygwin tool chain construction is very simple when made
in a Linux host so I can try to do it, but unfortunately I don't have a good
knowledge about necesary steps to do that. I've the Linux Redhat 6.1 and
eventually the Mandrake 7.2. If the necessary steps to create Cygwin tool
chain for SH are simple (in Linux host) please someone could teach me
what I must do ?

Thank you in advance....
