Thanks... That worked, the SDL.DLL file was actually in
cygwin\usr\local\bin... Is there
A)some config required to avoid having to copy this file
B)should the build process copy this file automatically
C)Should this step be present in the instructions

|You did do a 'cvs co manual', right?

No... I assume from that remark that "cvs -z3 co rockbox-devel" does
not include the manual... Sorry - my bad

Thanks for the swift response..
