"build_alias" trouble under Cygwin when use "--disable-networking"

I haven't noticed that restarting the Cygwin shell helps, but shutting down
other programs and not using the computer for anything else while it builds
definitely does. I normally keep a lot of programs open (several Cygwin
shells, CodeWright, web browser, Acrobat viewer, etc) and have other things
going (downloads, printing, etc.) while I wait for long compiles. I have
built other large projects under Cygwin with my computer loaded heavily
without any trouble, but when rebuilding RTEMS, I have started shutting
everything else down and using a different computer while it builds. If I
don't shut everything else down, it will lock up or fail with the
build_alias message about half of the time.
Even without any other programs running, I was having trouble with the
../rtems-4.6.0pre5/configure --target=m68k-rtems \
I had much better results with
../rtems-4.6.0pre5/configure --disable-networking \
I don't know why changing the order of the command line options should make
a difference, but it does on my system (IIRC others have mentioned similar
things on Cygwin). It seems like there is a stability problem under
Cygwin, at least when compiling RTEMS. I don't have any idea how to go
about tracking it down.
