OK, this is the part I was getting confused on...
Don't use Cygwin's gcc!
yet it tells me to

2.2.2. Install Cygwin

Download the cygwin installer and start it.

Trying it...

Thanks Gerald & Guy,
Since http://buildbot.wireshark.org/trunk/waterfall shows green & yellow on wireshark win32 I've been downloading the latest svn compiled wireshark win32 once or twice a day for a few days now and they all seem really stable so far and even seems to be stable on my Windows Vista 64-bit. My attempts to compile win32 and win64 myself crashed and burned again.
C:\wireshark>set WIRESHARK_TARGET_PLATFORM=win64
C:\wireshark>set PLATFORM=win64
C:\wireshark>nmake -f Makefile.nmake distclean
Microsoft (R) Program Maintenance Utility Version 9.00.30729.01

        rm -rf wireshark-gtk2
'rm' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.
NMAKE : fatal error U1077: 'rm' : return code '0x1'
I must be doing something really OS level dumb because, rm -rf (directory) is a linux command but I'm using XP Pro 32-bit to try and compile wireshark as win32 and win64.

Cool thanks folks! Since http://buildbot.wireshark.org/trunk/waterfall shows failed on both wireshark win32 and win64, I'll hold off on my svn update until later tonight when both are green.

You should now, along with updating SVN. I just checked in a change to use
WIRESHARK_TARGET_PLATFORM (note the fixed spelling) instead of PLATFORM.

Config.nmake sets CPU according to WIRESHARK_TARGET_PLATFORM. You shouldn't have
to set it yourself.
