According to the manual the following needs to be
executed to rebuild expect (I have to because I need it
to use Tcl from Cygwin):

$ ./configure
$ make expect

But I have not succeeded rebuiding expect-20030128-1
under Cygwin:

'./configure' does not report any error but 'make expect'
does:

The following is output:

$ ./configure

Any suggestions?

    Fixed by first building ./Tcl and then ./expect.
