People have built Xapian successfully on cygwin. The last success
report anyone sent me was:
x86 | Cygwin 1.5.10 GCC 3.3.3 XP sp2 |~0.8.4 |Passed|  from Mike Boone
 Fails to build if there are spaces in the full path to the directory.
(~0.8.4 means CVS shortly before the 0.8.4 release).
I guess we should check for spaces in the paths that can't be handled
so we give a more helpful error message. (This restriction is from
autoconf/automake/etc incidentally, though I think it might come from
limitations in make).
What does "config.log" say?
