I'm not sure that target-os is correct in this case.
Is it possible to build gcc on cygwin to cross-compile
to linux (for example)?
Anyway, Beman, can you test whether the attached
patch fixes your problem without the need to specify
the paths to ar and ranlib explicitly? I've checked
that it doesn't break gcc on linux, but I don't have
cygwin installed here.
