compiling gnuplot under cygwin

( from
I am using cygwin (I tried on other version too) on Windows XP pro,

1. extract GD library,
"./configure", than
"make -f makefile" which creates "libgd.a"

2. copy "libgd.a" to /cygwin/lib/
copy "gd.h" to /gnuplot/term/
copy "gd_io.h" and "gdfx.h" to /gnuplot/src/

3. from /gnuplot/config/ to /gnuplot/src/ :
copy "makefile.cyg" as "makefile"
copy "config.cyg" as "config.h"

4. in /gnuplot/src/ type "make -f makefile"

Everything goes well until:
