I met same trouble when I tried to compile pari-gp 2.1.0 from the
source on my Microsoft Windows98SE / Cygwin box.

After wasting a few hours, I gave up. But I also found that `make
gp-sta' will build a static version of pari library and gp-sta.exe.
They works well.

The precompiled binary of gp for cygwin environment is available from
(This is written in README.WIN file), though I did not try it.

In section 4 of same file,

I wonder it is really quite easy or not so easy.
