If you've been attempting to build minimo for Pocket PC using these instructions, you might want to have a look at my notes, particularly the errors regarding "spawning clarm.exe" -- the google results I found on that never did mention you had to be Administrator! I just thought of that because of all the other weird program failures due to that (such as hotsync to my Clié). Why you should have to be root user to compile a fucking program is beyond me, but that's Microsoft for ya.

I wish the instructions were more Cygwin-specific, they keep going back-and-forth between unix and CMD.EXE syntax, but I guess there's a reason for it and I'm trying to come up with something better before my next attempt.
