    i want to install Brl-CAD with cygwin on Windows NT4-SP6 by doing the follwing steps:

    1. Installing cygwin:
    - Download "setup.exe" from:
    - Doubleclick "setup.exe" and follow the installation process
        At Step "Select Packages" choose "gcc-core", "gcc-g++" and "make" in Category "Devel"

    2. Installing BRL-CAD:
    - Download "" from: -Register: BRL-CAD Source-
    - unzip ""
    - start "cygwin" and change into the extracted directory
    - type the following commands one after the other have finnished:
      make benchmark
      make install   # as root, e.g. sudo make install
      make test

    But after the 'make' command i get errors.
    Did I install enought/the right packages for cygwin ("gcc-core", "gcc-g++" and "make" in Category "Devel") ?
