[Tinyos-help] Compilation for TOSSIM extremely slow in Cygwin

I am using Tinyos 2.0.1 through Cygwin in windows 7 on a dual core 
processor machine with 4GB of RAM. Whenever I am compiling any 
application for simulation (make micaz sim) it takes more than 5 minutes 
to complete. Otherwise (for other platforms, e.g., make micaz), its very 
fast and completes almost immediately. But for TOSSIM it completes all 
the processing, executes the following command

g++ -fpic -W1,--enabled-auto-image-base   simbuild/micaz/pytossim.o 
az/sim.o simbuild/micaz/tossim.o simbuild/micaz/c-support.o -shared 
ython2.5/config -L//usr/include/python2.5/config -lstdc++ -lpython2.5 -o 

and then hangs up seemingly doing nothing - the processor activity is 
also not noticeable! However, if I compile the same program in Ubuntu 
running in virtual machine. It is very fast both for TOSSIM and other 

Can anyone please explain what could be the problem and how could I 
solve it?
