I was using Winzip, so I tried the tar command.  I still get the same
error.  I have the assembler set up in the path when I start cygwin, but
I am beginning to think that the configuration or makefile is not
attaching the prefix to the "as" command when making.  I've been combing
thru the files used for the make in order to try to find the "as"
command.  I'm going to try a few other things before I give Linux a run
with the compiler.  Ideally I need one for crossing from windows to
powerpc, but at this point I'll take what I can get.
