Re: bash broken with cygwin 1.3.20?

Hi Corrina...

Thanks for your reply...

Well... configure is a shell script. And is executed with bash.
So ok... Bash has the problem in finding the correct file
(configure uses test for this). Of course the failure might be
triggered by a bug in cygwin1.3.20. And maybe it is only a
cygwin issue...

It appears I made it a bit complicated... Sorry.

But well, the bug (at least on my machines here) persists.
Has anyone else tried this with cygwin 1.3.20?

Sorry but somehow I don't see bash in this figure.
