giza++ under windows

After an 'outrageous' attempt to compile giza++ under Visual Studio C++ Express 2008 (with more than 2000 compile time errors) I switched over to cygwin and installed:

gcc version 3.4.4 (cygming special, gdc 0.12, using dmd 0.125)
make GNU Make 3.81 (built for i686-pc-cygwin)


$ make

under giza-pp-v1.0.3\giza-pp I have obtained two executables: GIZA++-v2/GIZA++.exe and mkcls-v2/mkcls.exe which perfectly run under Windows XP Professional Version 2002 SP 2.
