I think you meant the mount table, not the PATH variable, since specifying
an explicit path to /bin/pinfo didn't work.

To the OP: one more guess, though: try posting the result of "ls -l
/bin/pinfo.exe" (notice the extension).  If that file exists, but is not
executable, there's something wrong with either your CYGWIN variable or
your mount table (or your umask, but I doubt that).
