I need to add the "-enable-extensions=pref" for windows thunderbird (The build worked fine on linux)
My problem is that with cygwin gcc and mingw , I always get :

Administrateur@pat4045 /cygdrive/c/mozillabuild/thunderbird/mozilla
$ ./configure
checking host system type... i686-pc-cygwin
checking target system type... i686-pc-cygwin
checking build system type... i686-pc-cygwin
checking for gcc... cl
checking whether the C compiler (cl ) works... no
configure: error: installation or configuration problem: C compiler cannot creat
e executables.

What is missing ? a cygwing package? a mingw , other ?

Here's what I put in my cygwin.bat

set MOZ_TOOLS=c:\mozillabuild\moztools
set PATH=c:\mozillabuild\mingw\bin;c:\cygwin\bin;%MOZ_TOOLS%\bin;%PATH%
rem set HOME=c:\mozillabuild
set CXX=g++
set CPP=cpp
set AS=as
set LD=ld

thanks for your help.

Have you installed GCC (GNU Compiler Collection)?
Type gcc --version and see if it responds.

The last 20 lines of mozilla/config.log will provide more information on the specific problem.

You may be missing "CC=gcc" in your .mozconfig (it looks like it's still trying to use MSVC for C files).
