can't build LLVM under Cygwin | released MinGW llvm-2.3 image

I used to be able to build LLVM (from source) under Cygwin for llvm-2.2 and previous releases, but can't continue the trend since the release of LLVM 2.3.
I have tried a wide variety of gcc compilers (gcc 3.4.4, 4.1.2, 4.2.4 and 4.3.2) on cygwin, they all fail at the same location:

make[1]: Nothing to be done for `all'.
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/czhao/ResearchTools/LLVM/2.3/obj2.3/lib/System'

The GettingStarted page mentions that gcc 3.4.4 is used for the X86/Cygwin/MinGW build. Is this still true? or there is/are special flags/options I am missing?

Try this:

I might be wrong, but I think the latest version of Cygwin got this
fixed upstream.

The archives on GMANE are a very good source of information for
cygwin/mingw build.

Hope this helps,

I don't think cygwin is at fault; it's defining uint32_t as a 32-bit
unsigned type.

How about this patch (attached) which works for me on cygwin?
