Michael, excuse me if I'll correct you:
SDCC can be compiled natively with MINGW, BORLABD C++ and MSVC on WIN32
platforms. BORLAND C++ and MSVC builds doesn't depend on CygWin (read it
as ./configure), you need just some Unix (GNU) tools to compile it: awk,
bison (yacc) and flex (lex). Details are explained in sdccman documentation.
I also don't understand, why would you need two days to compile it?
BORLAND C++ and MSVC compiling speed is comparable to gcc.
P.S.: I wrote this just as an explanation. I don't have precedence over
any of mentioned compilers. Each of them does it's job well.
I don't wont to start a new holly war :-)
