First check that gcc is in the path, something like this (in mintty):
$ which gcc

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
shouldn't be needed, see above).
./configure CC=gcc
In fact you can learn that by simply running:
./configure --help
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 for gcc.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.
jc@DESKTOP-A72U7VL ~/qemu
$  ./configure && make
ERROR: "cc" either does not exist or does not work
Okay you said earlier:
no on C:\cygwin\usr no gcc folder but if the mingw32 folder, this is
vygwin error because the whole development category is installed
which implies you installed MinGW, not Cygwin, tools, causing the issue.
You should ask about using these tools on the MinGW mailing list, see:
after reading and following:
I do not understand what I said, I said that from the installation
graphical cygwin instaé entire category development to avoid
dependency problems, was cygwin who installed mingw instead of gcc so
that nueevo indicate that failure cygwin

If you *successfully* installed the entire Cygwin Base + Development
categories, you would at least have gcc and cc symlinked to gcc available.
Whether you would be able to run anything without address space
exhaustion would be the likely issue.
Please check Cygwin /var/log/setup.log.full to see if errors were
reported during installation - attach the log in a reply if so.

Else please follow the Cygwin problem reporting guidelines and attach
the output from running cygcheck -svr > cygcheck.txt to a reply post.

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