Returning the thread to the original topic of Rakudo (not Star)
explains why Rakudo doesn't compile on Cygwin ( both 32 bit and 64
bit) since pthread_barrier isn't available on cygwin.
There is a fork of cygwin called mingw which works (since it doesn't
pretend to be POSIX). This is bundled with Strawberry Perl which is
convenient since you only have to install one tool rather than two.
32 bit Windows should compile Rakudo if you install Strawberry Perl
and have both gcc and gmake in the path. Note you need to use cmd.exe
as a shell (not bash) and gmake rather than Window's usual nmake.
