GCC 4.6 may not install on some systems? Edit

A recent edit from a user said, "A noter : que GCC v4.6 ne s'installe pas chez certaine machine"

Build gotcha - PATH needs cygwin utilities ahead of windows utilities. Edit

Great page - very useful.

One problem I ran into - my installation of cygwin set the PATH environment variable when you launch a shell to have the windows/system32 directory ahead of /bin and /usr/bin.

This caused the gcc build to fail when make tried to use 'sort' and got the windows version instead of the cygwin one.



Hi I updated my gcc according to http://cygwin.wikia.com/wiki/How_to_install_a_newer_version_of_GCC but now whatever I want to do in my Cygwin I get:

configure:2236: error: C compiler cannot create executables

See `config.log' for more details.
