Seems we ran into the same error messages... ;-)
I can confirm that the recently updated config.guess/config.sub do not
break the build and error messages are gone.
However it doesn't build with Cygwin64 because it detects
"x86_64-unknown-cygwin" I will try "--build=i686-pc-cygwin" now.

My laptop was low on disk space too. But I could add an additional SSD
in a PCIe slot... ;-)
I run Ubuntu 16.04.3 with Windows 10 in VirtualBox.

I will update the Wiki step by step now.
