I'm trying to get gcc running on cygwin. Whenever I launch it, I get the error:

$ gcc a1.c
gcc: installation problem, cannot exec '/usr/lib/gcc/i686-pc-cygwin/3.4.4/cc1.exe': Bad address
gcc: installation problem, cannot exec '/usr/lib/gcc/i686-pc-cygwin/3.4.4/collect2.exe': Bad address

gcc4 has the same problem. What may be causing this?

Are you using the rxvt Cygwin terminal? Did you try via a normal Windows command prompt? –  Silviu May 20 '12 at 20:28
    
That doesn't make any difference. Installing gcc-4, however, seems to have fixed gcc-3. So my problem is solved but I'm still curious if anyone has an explanation. –  Erik May 20 '12 at 21:29
