Re: 1.7.11-1 Update returns non-zero exit codes for coreutils

I opened the cygwin terminal and got the usual shell prompt.  I entered the "cd" or "ls" commands and got a command not found error.  I echoed  
$PATH and saw that the path didn't look correct (which is why I assume the commands couldn't be found).  I would have expected to see /usr/bin and 
/usr/local/bin in the path somewhere.  I didn't try giving the full path to these commands to see if the commands would have worked (I assume they 
would, but will confirm tonight).

I opened an Explorer session and went to C:\cygwin\bin and I could see the ls.exe and cygcheck.exe files were present so I presumed the issue was 
with the $PATH not being set correctly.

I got the command not found error when I tried to run cygcheck from the shell.  Stupidly, I didn't try with the full path to the file in the shell. 
I did open a windoz cmd window and ran the cygcheck command.  There were errors (which I didn't bother to record of course).  I will repeat this 
attempt and send the results this evening.
