First check that gcc is in the path, something like this (in mintty):
$ which gcc
$ which cc
but this is not true, when I call to gcc works correctly, todod
tutorials tell me that do the following ./configure --cc=gcc or
./configure --cc="gcc-3 -mno-cygwin" --host-cc=gcc-3
Wrong, useless, tutorials.  What you really do, if needed (and it really
shouldn't be needed, see above).
./configure CC=gcc
In fact you can learn that by simply running:
./configure --help
no on C:\cygwin\usr no gcc folder but if the mingw32 folder, this is
vygwin error because the whole development category is installed

On Unix most executables have no extension, so Cygwin does not always
show the .exe following a program name, and /usr/bin/gcc is the normal
Cygwin output for the compiler gcc.exe, and is not a folder name.
If you look for the file under Windows Explorer, you will see the
directory entry forgcc.exe, unless you hide extensions.

Please run Cygwin using the Cygwin Terminal Start Menu Entry;
in that window, cd to the directory where the program configure script
was downloaded; run the following command:
	./configure && make
without adding any other options, and post the output in a reply here.

Without actual error messages, no one can see if you have any issues
which need fixed.

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
