  Hm, that sounds like a file that you have write but not delete permissions

  Well, just to state the obvious, /you/ would be the most ideally-placed
person to do so.

  I don't even have Vista, so I'm kinda ruled out there, but I'd take a look
at the perms and ACLs of conftest.dir and the existing depcomp file in there,
using both 'getfacl' to show cygwin's view of the posix-style perms, and
'cacls' to compare with windoze's opinion.

  BTW, you didn't by any chance use winzip to unpack the tarball did you?

Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
