Using the updated instructions I shared with the list on 31/3 on a clean 
Cygwin install build Box Backup with no errors. The instructions also 
include a list of the packages that I installed in Cygwin.

This process definitely builds usable executables, but I do not know 
about the docbook stylesheets you mention: is there a way for me to 
check if they are in order? Do you want me to send you a couple of them 
in order to compare them? Certainly no error messages pop up with 
regards to the docbooks, it only takes forever to generate them...

Best regards, Achim
