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| [4] from Mike
  [4] Fails to build if there are spaces in the full path to the

(~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?
