I haven't tried to build on NT, but I build with Cygwin on Win98
without problems. You shouldn't need the --build= and --target=
arguments, since these should be done automatically under bash. The
following is the shell script I use to run configure, under bash. It
worked fine for dev.16. Feel free to modify and use. You shouldn't
nedd the "LIBS" setting for librand48.a, since the latest version
takes care of this. That is a good place to put a LIBS directive, if
you should need one.

LIBS="-lrand48" \
./configure \
--disable-dired-override \
--enable-addrlist-page \
--enable-change-exec \
--enable-exec-links \
--enable-externs \
--enable-gzip-help \
--enable-prettysrc \
--enable-read-eta \
--enable-source-cache \
--libdir=/etc \
--with-screen=ncurses \
--with-ssl \
