Because of the Windows file system's inability to distinguish files that differ in the case of the letters in their name alone, when compiled on Cygwin, locore.S and Locore.c result in object files that have the same name.
The same is believed to be true on MacOS HFS systems (though I have not confirmed that at all).
Build on a Cygwin platform. Full instructions for how to do this, including the patches needed for both Cygwin and the NetBSD source tree can be found at:
Rename the Locore.c file to something like locore_c.c (and change the corresponding reference in conf/files.powerpc)
