Getting the sources

Building binutils

Start the cygwin shell. you should be in a folder like user/YourName. If YourName is a path that has a space in it, I suggest to use a different one.

Now create a build directory and a subdirectory for binutils:

mkdir build
cd build
mkdir binutils
cd binutils

From the build directory run the binutils configure script:

../../src/binutils-2.20/configure --target=x86_64-w64-mingw32 --enable-targets=x86_64-w64-mingw32,i686-w64-mingw32
  --with-sysroot=/RosBE64  --prefix=/RosBE64

Now build the whole stuff.

make

Finally install it into the designated directory.

make install
