Will do.

The first time I tried to build it took 20 hours to fail because Windows
ignored my setting not to sleep due to inactivity, and I didn't realize
that it was suspending rather than just shutting the screen off....

We thought we were doing the two-step process this whole time anyway, so
from now on we will be using the --without-rtems flag and actually breaking
it into two steps.

Very useful, thanks!

I had run the 4.11.0 build from git before you told me it was broken -- It
also fails on this machine on arg4n2xwm1. Since 4.11.0 built completely on
our older Windows 7 machine, but all the "--without-rtems" builds (4.11.2
release tarball, 4.11.0 release tarball, 4.11.0 git checkout) I've tried
fail on this same step, does that suggest something wrong with my
I am currently building 4.11.2 from git ("git checkout 4.11.2" prior to
building), and it looks promising because it's been going for longer than
the others took to fail. I'll report back tomorrow.
