I am trying to install ming32/cpd using Cygwin, and getting into some
problems. I hope somebody can help me out. Please cc to
asishlaw@aaxisgroup.com, as I am not subscribed to this list.

I tried to follow the instructions in gnupg-1.0.4/doc/Readme.w32 to download
and install mingw32/cpd, and getting into a few problems.

1. After I have untar'ed all the 4 packages (mingw32-cpd-0.2.4,
windows32api-0.1.2, gcc-2.95.2, binutils-2.9.1), I try to run ./Configure in
the mingw32-cpd-0.2.4 folder. It gives me syntax error at line 72 of the
Configure file. I removed the keyword "function" from in-front of the
function names, and then at least it continues with the configuration - I
don't know if this is right.

2. Once I get configure started, it tries to patch gcc, but fails to patch
around the end of the gcc-2.95.2.diff patch file,  i.e., around the
following statements:
+#ifndef __MINGW32__
 #include <varargs.h>
 #include <stdio.h>
 #include <ansidecl.h>
@@ -53,3 +54,4 @@

3. If I ignore the above error, and finish configuring, then I run "make
install", it proceeds until some point, but then is unable to find cpp.texi
in the gcc-2.95.2/gcc folder. I don't understand why it is unable to find
this file, because I can see it in the above folder.

I have been trying to compile gnupg sources for more than a week now, and
getting into one problem after another. Any help will be greatly
