I have tried several times now to build gdb using cygwin on a windows7_X64 laptop and windows_XP_Sp3 PC without any success.

Has anyone been able to build gdb successfully? If yes can you give any tips.

My inital errors were related to iconv which I attemped to resolve by installing libiconv into cugwin. It hasn't fixed the make though.

I am simply using
./configure

then

make

I am attempting to use gdb branch 7.3
