If your analysis of your build system doesn't yield a clue,… and you are running Norton AntiVirus.  Remove Norton and try a rebuild.  Norton AntiVius will delete temp files and executables, on Windows 7, during a build of LibreOffice.

! am trying to  build from the down loaded source code.  I have followed the 'getting started' procedures down to

./setup --dev

cd dev/core
../../opt/bin/make 2>&1 | tee build.log
I used /usr/bin/make as per the output of autogen told me 
I got the following output:
/usr/bin/make -j 8  -rs -f C:/cygwin/home/user/acg/lode/dev/core/Makefile.gbuild    all
[build BRM] CustomTarget/tools/string/reversemap.cxx
/home/user/acg/lode/dev/core/tools/ recipe for target 'C:/cygwin/home/user/acg/lode/dev/core/workdir/CustomTarget/tools/string/reversemap.cxx' failed
make[1]: *** [C:/cygwin/home/user/acg/lode/dev/core/workdir/CustomTarget/tools/string/reversemap.cxx] Error 127
make[1]: *** Deleting file 'C:/cygwin/home/user/acg/lode/dev/core/workdir/CustomTarget/tools/string/reversemap.cxx'
Makefile:249: recipe for target 'build' failed
make: *** [build] Error 2
Can someone give ideas?
Thank you,
