I followed your advice and started over and FightGear WORKS!!!.
I had to place AL and GL in the /cygwin/include instead of
/usr/local/include. If I dont do that when I run ./configure for SimGear,
it errors out at the end and says openAL has to be installed. The last few
lines before this error message look for openAl files and three no's

Thanks for your help. I am still getting the Segmentation fault <core
dumped> when I exit FlightGear but it runs regardless. That might have not
been my problem running fgfs the whole time.

I am going to move on to modifiying the HUD. Wish me luck..

I think you ought to get it all to compile in the advised locations. A
possible cause of problems is multiple versions of AL and GL. Make sure
you only have one version of each. What are your errors in compiling
with OpenAl in the 'correct' location?

A possible way forward is to start over - uninstall Cygwin, and start from
there. Download and install compatible versions of plib, OpenAl (our
variant) etc, and rebuild. Tedious, but probably quicker than chasing down
files in obscure directories.

Hmm ... this was a problem in the past, but I think it shouldn't be needed

Keep trying, it definitely does work.
