Problems installing CygWin ARM

I have once successfully built my CygWin arm-elf cross compiler and thats what
I'm using now. Seems to work just fine, but I'd like to tweak some configure time
options.


When I tried to do it a second time, I ran into problems. It appears as if
CygWin is confused w.r.t. the .exe filename extension for binaries.


I have no clue why this problem did not appear the first time I managed to compile 
GCC.


This the setup.sh script that I used to compile the bootstrap cross
compiler which I'll subsequently use to compile newlib:

----
# Make directories where we do the build.
mkdir build-binutils
mkdir build-gcc-bare
mkdir build-gcc
mkdir build-newlib
mkdir build-gdb
mkdir install
export TARGET=arm-elf
export PREFIX=`pwd`/install
export PATH=$PATH:$PREFIX/bin
export NEWLIBPATH=`pwd`/../arm/newlib-1.9.0
# we need the object file format tools for arm-elf 
cd build-binutils
../../arm/binutils-2.13.1/configure --target=$TARGET --prefix=$PREFIX
make all 2>&1 | tee ../binutils-make.log
make install 2>&1 | tee ../binutils-install.log
cd ..
# for some reason we need to build and install the runtime
# libraries before we compile the real compiler
cd build-gcc-bare
../../gcc33/gcc/configure --target=$TARGET --prefix=$PREFIX --with-headers=$NEWLIBPATH/newlib/libc/include --with-gnu-as --with-gnu-ld --disable-shared --enable-languages=c
make all-gcc 2>&1 | tee ../gcc-bare-make.log
make install-gcc 2>&1 | tee ../gcc-bare-install.log
cd ..
# Since we are an embedded target, we need newlib instead of
# GCCs runtime libraries
cd build-newlib
$NEWLIBPATH/configure --target=$TARGET --prefix=$PREFIX 
make all 2>&1 | tee ../newlib-make.log
make install 2>&1 | tee ../newlib-install.log
cd ..
echo Done!

---

Below is the tail of the failed install of the bootstrap compiler



Any help would be Greatly Appreciated.
