I think that the right place for the note is at http://gcc.gnu.org/install/specific.html#x-x-cygwin It should say something like: Versions of Cygwin older than x.y.z fail to build the decimal floating point library, libbid. You will either need to upgrade Cygwin to a newer version or disable decimal floating point by specifying --disable-decimal-float at configure time.
