With './configure  --build=i686-pc-cygwin32 --with-gcc=c:/cygwin/bin/gcc
--with-ld=c:/cygwin/bin/ld' I got to the point:

../compiler/ghc-inplace -optc-mno-cygwin -optc-O -optc-Wall -optc-W
-optc-Wstrict-prototypes -optc-Wmissing-prototypes
-optc-Wmissing-declarations -optc-Winline -optc-Waggregate-return
-optc-Wbad-function-cast -optc-I../includes -optc-I. -optc-Iparallel
-optc-DCOMPILING_RTS -optc-fomit-frame-pointer -optc-fno-strict-aliasing
-H16m -O -optc-O2 -static -I. -#include HCIncludes.h -fvia-C -dcmm-lint
-c Adjustor.c -o Adjustor.o
make: *** [Adjustor.o] Error 1

The stage1 ghc-inplace doesn't seem to be able to produce neither code
nor an error message. It just fails. It also isn't a cygwin program
according to ldd; should it be?
