  Actually my goal is make it possible to build stdcxx/MinGW and stdcxx/Cygwin
using Cygwin environment as well as stdcxx/MinGW using MSYS environment.

  I have no such problems when running make on MSYS.

  Hmm, you must be wrong, we don't have any file with the name "build" in svn.

  My congratulations, you have just build the stdcxx library :)

Not all tests are compiling without errors on gcc/MinGW at the moment. It is ok.

  You can build the library only (without examples, tests and so on) using this 
command: "make config lib"
Also I suggest to explicitly specify the build type. I.e.:

make BUILDDIR=/var/tmp/stdcxx-4.2.2/gcc/15d BUILDTYPE=15d config lib

  I don't think so. The make should stop on the first error encountered unless 
make was executed with "-k" option specified.

  Right, that because of make stopped on the compile error you mentioned above.

  It depends on what you want :) You have build the stdcxx library 
successfully, so now you can compile
your programs with stdcxx.

  18.c.limits.stdcxx-988.cpp is just one of the regression tests. It was not 
verified on gcc/MinGW so
it fails to compile. But this failure doesn't means that there is some problem 
or bug in stdcxx library.
