[Vm-dev] instructions for building on Windows

have you tried building it on a fresh new cygwin?
I am on 64bit windows, but I am trying to build 32bit VM. (and so I am using 32bit cygwin)
1. I've cloned opensmalltalk-vm
2. ran scripts/updateSCCSVersions (from w10 native bash)
2. downloaded setup-x86.exe
3. ran a small init script (for variables):
@REM all mirrors: https://cygwin.com/mirrors.html
@REM US mirror (for appveyor)
@REM set CYG_MIRROR="http://cygwin.mirror.constant.com"
@REM EU mirror
4. installed dependencies
%CYG_SETUP% -dgnqNO -R "%CYG_ROOT%" -s "%CYG_MIRROR%" -l "%CYG_ROOT%\var\cache\setup" -P mingw64-%MINGW_ARCH%-gcc-core,mingw64-%MINGW_ARCH%-gcc-g++,mingw64-%MINGW_ARCH%-headers,mingw64-%MINGW_ARCH%-runtime,zip,mingw64-%MINGW_ARCH%-clang,libiconv-devel,libglib2.0-devel,perl,mingw64-%MINGW_ARCH%-zlib,cmake,mingw64-%MINGW_ARCH%-win-iconv
4. switched to (cygwin's) bash
5. exported the following variables
6. ran ./.travis_build.sh
6.a. it complains about missing line 16: x86_64-w64-mingw32-gcc: command not found , but I am building 32bit so it should be fine
7. the build commences but immediately fails because I don't have make
8. I install make
%CYG_SETUP% -dgnqNO -R "%CYG_ROOT%" -s "%CYG_MIRROR%" -l "%CYG_ROOT%\var\cache\setup" -P make
9. rerun the build
10. fail on missing wget
11. install wget
%CYG_SETUP% -dgnqNO -R "%CYG_ROOT%" -s "%CYG_MIRROR%" -l "%CYG_ROOT%\var\cache\setup" -P wget
13. fail on "configure: error: no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH"
now I could explicitly specify the CC=i686-w64-mingw32-gcc as I've done yesterday, and then eventually fail on missing glib,intl (which I would install), and then fail on cairo (which I didn't resolve), but considering you said that specifying CC is not needed, then I've clearly missed a step somewhere.
