I got the following error in configuring GMP while building a bare metal GNU cross toolchain for Xtensa on cygwin

configure: error: could not find a working compiler, see config.log for details

The build was performed using a crosstool-NG downloaded from the site using the git clone git clone

This downloads GMP-5.1.1 while downloading GCC and related packages.

1. Build environment - cygwin

2. The GMP version number - GMP-5.1.1

3. Output of gcc -v

$ gcc -v

The output of config.log and build.log is attached.

Please let me know if you need any more information.
