That is how I started. But, when I started to compile Bedrockdb, there were too many compiler errors. Since the source is gcc-6 compatible, the version I downloaded from cygwin was 7.4.0-01. So, I didn't want to go that way, since the source would have to be changed.

I could try this next, but I would need you to be there. :-) Just kidding.
Thanks, Doug. I have installed gcc-6,
$ gcc --version
gcc (GCC) 6.4.0

$ which gcc
So, now I will start to compile Bedrockdb. Thanks for all your help, folks.
