Terribly out of date and no longer safe to use on a networked system.
Of course it's up to date...
So I turn to strace and it states Illegal Instruction. Any ideas?
BLODA or worse, assuming that _you_ didn't change anything recently.
That is not BLODA. That's the standard list of libraries. I changed
nothing; it worked yesterday; today it didn't. Every other Cygwin
executable I've tried works without problem. I even tried reextracting
the files from perl_base.

combined with an outdated Perl (Cygwin is at 5.26.3 now). What are you
trying to achieve? Please fully update Cygwin after checking your
system. Also, you might want to clean up your PATH a bit.
I'm not going to recompile all my modules and rework the new lib paths
until I have a really good reason to.
I'ld be happy to run any other diagnostic command anyone can think of.
