I built a toolchain for ppc under cygwin about a year ago.
I used the Billgatliff's script(
It failed to build glibc. So I copied glibc from a linux machine.
I've been using the toolchain, without any problem, for our custom MPC755 board, for about a year.
I recommand the Billgatliff's script, if you are going to make a tool chain for ppc under cygwin.
