Many thanks. Yes, this question has slightly sidetracked on the license
issue, which was mostly an aside as to why we wish to use something other
On the make issue, I am very interested to know what it is supposed to be
doing. Is this a standard Linux-like make, and if so where is the Makefile
which defines the "checkout" target?

If you have serious questions about the licensing of Cygwin/LLVM, you
really need to talk to a lawyer. No one on this list can give you
advice in that area which will accurately reflect what is correct for
you and your needs because none of us are lawyers.
Perhaps you should explore the possibilities of VC, etc., which are
actively maintained by members of the community. If you have specific
questions about getting up and started with these, let us know.
For your previous questions:
1) "svn" is a Subversion command (see http://subversion.tigris.org/).
Subversion is the versioning system we use here.
2) There are "make" commands out there for Windows. But if you're
having troubles with them, ask if there are other ways to get around
