make -f Makefile.cvs

before configuring. in the qt3 compiling page this is documented. in the
qt3-win32 compiling this step wasn't documented until now.

The cygipc package is installed in the /usr/local tree. I've added this path to
qmake.conf instead of using links. Please update your checkout sources.

$ cat mkspecs/cygwin-g++/qmake.conf
QMAKE_INCDIR		=	/usr/local/include
QMAKE_LIBDIR		=	/usr/local/lib

If you encounter any problems, please report to this list.
