"mount" returns the following for me:

C:\cygwin\bin on /usr/bin type system (binmode)
C:\cygwin\lib on /usr/lib type system (binmode)
C:\cygwin on / type system (binmode)
c: on /cygdrive/c type system (binmode,cygexec)
e: on /cygdrive/e type system (binmode,noumount)

So, I think everything looks ok.  I'm still getting the "missing seperator" error for the line that defines IFS in sysd-syscalls.  That sysd-syscalls file is generated so it should not be the case that I'm doing anything to the file (adding/removing spaces, tabs, etc.).  Anyone else perform any recent builds on cygwin?!

FWIW, I was able to successfully build the same toolchain on linux last night without issue.  It must be a cygwin thing...

Thanks Duane!
