Re: configure error: cannot find install-sh or in ../.. "../../winsup/cygwin"/../..

The reason for it, was I initially had issues trying to install
openswan into cygwin. Openswan is supposed to support installation on
cygwin. I was then instructed to cross compile openswan for cygwin on
linux to try and get it to work. And i was told to look at the
cross-compiler doc in the openswan package on how to do that. Which
told me to get winsup and build it so I would have a compiler on Linux
to build openswan for cygwin. But thats when i ran into the issues

You mention packages that come with a cygwin installation to compile a
program to be used on cygwin. Mind giving me a rough idea on how to do
