You said it, but I agreed. :-)

True, but I thought it would be the closest "linux flavor" in comparison to Cygwin.  There is a set of Mac build steps.  I started with that.  First built brew in cygwin, but then when tried to do 'brew install gcc@6' got a bunch of errors and I just thought that building gcc6 from scratch without brew would be the best way to go, but it wasn't.

Reminiscing way back in the days... Marlon Brando, "You don't understand! I coulda had class. I coulda been a contender. I coulda been somebody instead of a bum, which is what I am."
