I have an problem while compiling vlc unter cygwin/winxp sp2 with the 
latest trunk sources

every time i try to run the config - this error is displayed in the 
cygwin shell

activex/Makefile.am:143: shell $(VLC_CONFIG: non-POSIX variable name
activex/Makefile.am:143: (probably a GNU make extension)
activex/Makefile.am: installing `autotools/compile'

modules/misc/testsuite/Makefile.am: Objective C source seen but `OBJC' 
is undefined

/usr/share/automake-1.9/am/program.am: ... overrides Automake target 
T)' defined here
Makefile.am:230:   while processing program `vlc'

The latest compileable build was svn 16105 (which works fine, except the 
  broken brightness controls) - i did not change anything of the cygwin 
setup - so i think that this is a (little) problem caused by the 
latest-trunk files ;)

the following config-script is used by myself:

./bootstrap && \
CPPFLAGS="-I/usr/win32/include -I/usr/win32/include/ebml" \
LDFLAGS=-L/usr/win32/lib \
CC="gcc -mno-cygwin" CXX="g++ -mno-cygwin" \
./configure \

--enable-nls \
