    Cross-Compiling Kernel on Cygwin: Crazy/Cool?

    Hi - I'm busy having fun dibbling around with CoLinux, and building it myself, etc.  It's all going great, apart from one small thing....

    The doc/building file seems to indicate that it's possible to build a vmlinux inside cygwin. There's a build-kernel.sh in the bin dir, which supports this idea.

    Of course, I tried this, and it fell over, complaining about elf.h  ...

    Is this possible? I know all my cygwin headers will be inappropriate for a linux environment, but is it worth trying to get it going?
