windows 10, cygwin, and compiling vim

Charles E Campbell Jr
Hello:

I've been working on getting a vim compiled under windows10+cygwin.
Hasn't worked too well yet.

* configure --with-features=huge
   That seems to work fine

* cd src; make  (note that this is done under cygwin, so its cygwin's
make and cygwin's gcc)
   about 20 warnings: all saying something like "visibility attribute
not supported in this configuration: ignored
   This warning affects pen.c, termscreen.c, unicode.c, state.c, vterm.c

   As a complete example of such a warning:
   libvterm/src/pen.h: In function 'vterm_state_newpen':
   libvterm/src/pen.c:164:1: warning: visibility attribute not supported
in this configuration; ignored [-Wattributes]

* otherwise, the compile completes without warnings.  When I try to run
it: nothing apparently happens.

I'd like to get a cygwin-based vim compiled and running; I'll just go
ahead and use the gvim from www.vim.org; I need both to insure that
netrw is working properly under Windows.

Thank you,
Chip Campbell

dr chip

as a long time user of netrw, i would like to do what i can to help with this
problem.

my current platform is win 10 (1809) with cygwin (uname -a):
  CYGWIN_NT-10.0 hostnamehere 3.0.3(0.338/5/3) 2019-03-09 19:12 x86_64 Cygwin

i have just now compiled, linked, and installed 8.1.1005 with no problems and no
thrown warnings.

these are the make options i use:
  --enable-perlinterp
  --enable-pythoninterp
  --enable-rubyinterp
  --enable-tclinterp
  --enable-cscope
  --enable-multibyte
  --with-features=huge

if it would be useful, i can send you via pm the list of cyg packages installed
on this system.
