I could not find FFTW as part of the Cygwin binary distribution system, 
so I downloaded, built and installed FFTW 2.1.5, and enabled FFTW in my 
GRASS 5.0.3 configure. The following is the compilation error log. I 
assume all these failed due to FFTW problem.

Regarding PNG, I installed the current gd and libgd via the Cygwin setup 
program, enabled gd (and png) in my 5.0.3 configure, and received no 
errors. However running GRASS:

   GRASS:~ > d.mon png
   ERROR: no such monitor 'png'
   No such monitor as 'png'
   Problem selecting png. Will try once more
   No such monitor as 'png'

I recall an earlier email from you in which you said gd was no required 
in 5.3, however I get exactly the same error as above in 5.3.

Nviz question: With what versions of GRASS is it appropriate to use and 
distribute the Cygwin NVWISH2.2 that you provided?

What would be merits of enabling proj? Although I have it installed 
under Cygwin, GRASS configure fails when I try to enable proj.
