Actually, a non-Cygwin tar.exe in the path will cause
setup to fail. In my case, I had gzip.exe and tar.exe
in my C:\WINNT\system32 (I downloaded emacs before
Cygwin so I needed these). In my case, I just renamed
the windows programs, but it appears that the above
suggested solution is the correct one.
