RE: FW: Need help to compile coreutils-5.96


What you say makes sense. I have run first and it
did not complete correctly because I did not have patch installed. I
have downloaded patch and then executed the script again thinking that
it would overwrite what the first attempt did. I will try to redo the
whole process from scratch and If I still have the problem, I'll come
back to report it.

BTW, it is the first time I try to compile a cygwin package and I'm
really amazed how easy it is. I used to have bad experiences with
compiling stuff on Unix but with your package, everything went very
smooth and flawlessly except for my small glitch.

Nice job!
