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.
