Please do
cd Ocygwin-i686; make bench

The Configure script is supposed to output 
Type 'cd Ocygwin-i686; make install'
but that does not work if you change the --host value. I will
try to fix that.

Did you 'export' this variable with
export HOSTTYPE 
or (csh)
setenv HOSTTYPE 

You can check that with 'env'

By the way, is there a better way to get the architecture under cygwin ?
Though for all I know we can at least assume it is i383 if HOSTTYPE is not
