Hi Tom,

I am running the latest versions from the mirror as
of today. Before starting the texinfo make, I ran cygwin's setup.exe and
brought everything up to the current revs.  The cygwin package version
is 1.1.5-7.  (There is now a cygwin 1.1.6-1, but it hasn't made it to
the mirror site yet.)  OS is Win 98 SE.

I just redid the texinfo-4.0 make starting from scratch, with no changes
other than the -DWIN32 patch.  I saw no errors and the installed
binaries work fine.  So, I'm mystified why we're getting different

In my version of the ginfo Makefile, "-ltermcap" does not appear.
Otherwise, the library list matches yours.  For some reason, the
configure script is adding libtermcap under your environment, but not
mine.  You might try deleting "-ltermcap" from the Makefile to see if it
finishes without error.
