Need help creating a 68k cross compiler under windows

I currently have a 68K cross compiler running under linux on a PC.  I would like to create a cross compiler to run on XP.  What would people recommend?  I've looked at minGW but there doesn't seem to be a good set of scripts for creating the cross compiler.  I've been unable to get a cygnus cross working.  I was thinking of just running an instance of linux under vmware but haven't tried that yet.

Suggestions?

Thanks!

Here's how to do it with Cygwin :

You should be able to do it with MinGW in a similar fashion.

When I follow the steps in the link, when I get to the point of "make install" for the binutils I get the error:

Entering directory '/home/Doug/binutils-2.15/bfd'
*** No Rule to make target 'install'.  Stop.

???

Check the makefile and see if there's an install target.

Did all the previous steps complete successfully ? Especially the configure step ?

There is in Makefile.in but not in Makefile.am  There isn't a plain Makefile

Makefile.in is used by the configure step for generating the makefile.
Makefile.am is used as a basis for creating the Makefile.in

Since you don't have a Makefile, it seems to me that the configure step failed. Can you verify that ?

The configure step appears to have run with no errors.  It makes a Makefile in the current directory which does have an "install" target, but no Makefile is created in ./bfd

It turns out that if I run: make all install  instead of: make install, it compiles.

So I think I'm set, Thanks!
