Thanks Mick, I'll try those.  BTW, I assume you mean the .diff are
patches that need to be applied, right?  For example, I need to patch
gcc-4.1.1 with the file gcc-core-4.1.1-rtems-20060720.diff.

FWIW, I attempted to install the msys tools, but they didn't seem to
work.  Because I'm developing for the Xilinx Virtex-4  FPGA with
embedded PowerPC, and they provide a Cygwin-based setup, I decided to
stick with Cygwin.  Plus, I'm comfortable with it already.

Of course, if I could have gotten the Xilinx USB programming cable to
work under Linux...
