I had a lot of error messages seeming related to comment5
(unmatched braces). But after refetching from CVS these
problems have gone. Now I have it building successfully.
There are two problems left:
1. line completion raises an access violation error.
2. debug version doesn't pass to the end - it stops at
'ar rcv lisp.a lisp.o' point with 'memory exhausted'
(this is cygwin bug or limitation).

I got libsigsegv from its CVS
/cvsroot/libsigsegv) and installed it. Seems that it
was picked up by configure.
