configuring buildroot for ARM using Cygwin

Yet when doing a -v on the uclibc-gcc I got from Keil I get:

Configured with: /home/Unknown/toolchain/build/gcc-3.3.1/configure 
Thread model: single
gcc version 3.3.1

suggesting that it was built specifically for cygwin, whereas if I do
the same for the one built with buildroot I get:

Target: arm-linux-uclibc
Configured with:
Thread model: single
gcc version 4.0.2

Which looks like different options.
What other options do I have if I wanted to build a newer version of
uclibc-gcc that can run under windows/Cygwin?

the entire point of cygwin is that tools shouldnt care ... cygwin
smells like linux so packages should work just fine

last i heard on the crossgcc list, cygwin support sucks because of a
lot of quirks in the filesystem behavior
