AHH!  Well, then I bet you have two copies of GCC installed and
as a result you're getting screwed.  I bet your PATH is mixed up
and you're getting the cygwin environment (or PART of that
environment) when you're trying to build gnucash.

I'd recommend that you delete cygwin completely from your system
before trying to build gnucash.  You certainly dont need it when
building gnucash, and if you read the MinGW web site it states
quite clearly (well, it did a year ago) that it shouldn't be
installed along side cygwin....

Have Fun!
