Shell scripts under Cygwin32

I'm attempting to compile some 'GNU type' applications under cygwin32
(or, more specifically:

CYGWIN_NT-4.0 20.1 (0.3/1/1) 1998-12-3 20:39:18 i686 unknown

which is the output of uname -a minus local stuff).

I find that when I go


at the command line I get

bash: ./configure: No such file or directory

So I have to go

sh configure

This is only mildly irritating, but of course scripts like 'configure'
contain many calls
to other scripts - and these require 'sh' to be prefixed to them too -
since first lines of

!# /cygwin/bin/sh

(for example) don't seem to work either.  I would be surprised if it's
really necessary for me to go and modify the whole script ...

Anyone know what's wrong here?
