If you've STFLA'd, it is good to mention this when asking your question. :-)

vi did not show any unusual line endings (CR/LF) in /etc/profile
before I sent my message in

...and you know to look for '(dos)' in the status line, right? Although as Larry pointed out, this is only reliable if vi[m] is configured a certain way; ultimately, you might want to just try running d2u on it regardless of what you *think* the line endings are. (Also, have you checked that there is not some OTHER script being called at login, say ~/.bash_profile, ~/.bashrc, etc) that has 'bad' line endings?)

I noticed that the cygcheck output said things weren't there when a
manual check shows that they are there and that they are in the path
that cygcheck says it is checking.

For my issue, not the thread hijacking 'make' issue, I do not have a
dual-core or hyperthreaded system.

Hint: that was satire. ;-)
(And to explain/ruin the inside joke, 'make 3-81' was the previous problem-that-everyone-reported-without-RTFRN'ing)

I did read the release notes when they came out.  The ANNOUNCE list is
the only one that I read all the messages for.  It did not look like
it should be causing the issues I am having.

Ok, but again you should have mentioned that in your first e-mail... Otherwise, as you can see, people jump to the obvious conclusion.

Plus, the more information you give off the bat, the more likely someone is to notice a problem and come up with a solution.
